SN_UK_LARGEST_SHIP_32 1.jpg
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE.<br />
