Incredible pictures are giving a different perspective of a cargo ship anchored off Great Yarmouth.

RAF Raffles has been sitting parallel to the resort's busy Golden Mile - a giant stationary structure in contrast to the hubbub of activity on the beach.

At anchor close to the shore it is visible even from Caister, and has been drawing interest.

Among those training their lens at the cargo ship which sails under the Singapore flag was Luke Martin, from Bradwell.

He said ships were his passion, adding: "It's interesting finding out where they have travelled from and what they are doing here."

The ship arrived on July 6 from Dunkirk in France where she had been for three days.
