A Soyuz space capsule has docked at the International Space Station (ISS) after a journey of less than six hours.

The three-man crew are the first to take the quicker route, involving just four orbits. The journey normally takes two days for a Russian spacecraft.

The arrival of Russians Pavel Vinogradov and Alexander Misurkin and Chris Cassidy of the US brings the number of crew at the ISS to six.
