A river cruiser has been loaded aboard an ocean freighter in South Africa to begin a voyage to Suffolk.

The Allen Gardiner has been operating out of Durban Harbour.

Now her owners have decided to base her on the River Orwell to be close to another boat in their fleet called the Lady Florence.

It's hoped the Allen Gardiner will make her maiden voyage on the River Orwell in November
