This aerial photograph shows a 235m vessel gingerly entering Great Yarmouth's new �50m Outer Harbour.

The Zhen Hua 6 docked in to the harbour on Monday and will soon start unloading two cranes to be used in the harbour's container terminal.

Over the last few months the Zhen Hua has ploughed her way across the waves on its journey from China to Yarmouth - via Hong Kong, South Africa's Cape of Good Hope and the Canary Islands.

A team of specialist engineers will be flown in to install the �7m cranes at the harbour over a two month period.
