China's biggest container ship is due to complete its maiden voyage from the Port of Felixstowe in Suffolk when it docks at Shanghai, the world's biggest container port.

The Cosco England is bigger than three football pitches and can carry more than 13,000 containers. It is one of three already built for Cosco, China's largest shipping line, which has commissioned another five due to be in service next year.
