'World's last' steamcoaster ship comes home to London


A ship, thought to be the last steamcoaster in the world, returned to the Royal Docks on Wednesday.

The SS Robin was built on the River Lea in east London 120 years ago.

The steamcoaster, built in 1890 and listed on the National Historic Fleet register, will be a floating museum when enough money has been raised.
