The Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, is back in the region today to visit the Port of Felixstowe. He'll see the 70 millionth container arrive at the Suffolk port. He's there to recognise the importance of the shipping sector to the British economy.
The milestone follows the opening in June of the port's third rail terminal, the new North Rail Terminal, which will double rail capacity at the port. Felixstowe is the UK's main port for exports to the growing markets of South East Asia.
