John Malone was fishing in his kayak off the coast of Eyemouth when a huge killer whale came spouting out of the water.

Mr Malone, who is an experienced kayaker, caught the footage on his helmet cam.

He has never seen anything like it:

"I was just sitting quietly fishing away, when i started to hear a huge blowing noise. I spun round and right in front of me was a huge killer whale.

"It was only in shot for a few seconds before it disappeared under the water and left a huge suction ring.

"That's when i really started to panic. Once it disappeared, i didn't know where it was going to come up again. Fortunately it didn't come up underneath my kayak."

The voluntary reserve was set up nearly 30 years ago to protect marine wildlife on the East Berwickshire coast.

Current members say if new people don't come forward to volunteer, it could disappear, which could have a knock-on effect to the local economy.
