Three giant cranes will sail along the Thames Estury this morning on their way to the new London Gateway port in Essex.
The cranes, which are two and a half times taller than Nelson's Column, have sailed on a three month voyage from China.
Twenty one more cranes are due to arrive as the new port nears completion.
