Motor stays running

Hi.
Might be a stupid question but I have noticed that there is a small motor by the top of the rad that continues to run even when I have turned car off and taken keys out. Runs for 5-10 minutes after.
Is this normal?
Just wondering as battery has a slight drain on it and wondered if this would be it?
Tried to upload photo but wont let me.
Cheers

As the Kiwi said.
It’s a water pump, I was fast asleep when I posted earlier.

These cars have plenty of noises.
Water pump,
carbon canister ( ticking under bonnet ),
Pre start fuel pump and many more.
