The UK flag's biggest ship in the world, which is longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall, has arrived at the port of Southampton today.

The CMA CGM Kerguelen measures 398m (1,305ft) long and is 54m (177ft) wide - longer than four football fields or five and a half A380 Airbuses - and can carry 17,722 20ft containers.

If all the ship's containers were laid out from end to end they would be 67 miles long, a distance equivalent from Southampton, Hants, to London Heathrow.
