Brexit inspired owner to bring Noah's Ark to Ipswich

A 70 metre long replica of Noah's Ark has floated into Ipswich.

It's currently moored at Orwell Quay on Ipswich Waterfront after arriving from the Netherlands

The ark is a floating exhibition of Bible stories, however the artist behind it says it is about culture and storytelling and not affiliated with any church or religious group.
