Affluent tourists enjoying upmarket holidays have helped boost the number of cruise ships visiting Portsmouth.

Cruise ship traffic at Portsmouth International Port has leapt 34% this year, according to figures.

Port officials have said their success is due to developing a niche market rather than trying to compete head-on with local rivals Southampton.
