it's been a landmark day for the Port of Felixstowe, the UK's busiest container port. Responsible for nearly half of all the goods that come into this country, today it handled its 70 millionth container.
There are concerns that Felixstowe is being held back by traffic problems on the A14, the major road, crossing our region, linking the docks with the motorway network. And there's a warning that introducing a toll section could drive business away.
Today the Transport Minister, Patrick McLoughlin, did his best to dispel those concerns.
