Sailing into Southampton, the last fleet of VW campers

The last ever fleet of VW Kombi camper vans to be imported to the UK have arrived in Southampton.

They were shipped in from Brazil, after the factory is to close down.

The 99 vans were unloaded at the port of Southampton before being taken to Bristol, where they will be turned into right hand drive cars with luxurious interiors.

All of the vans are unpainted shells so they can be painted in various colours.

VW called time on the production of the iconic car due to the designs not meeting safety standards.
