The arrival date of the Ever Given, the vessel which has been freed from the Suez Canal, to the Port of Felixstowe is yet to be confirmed.

The 200,000-tonne container ship ran aground in the Egyptian canal on March 23, blocking international trade between Asia and Europe.

It had been due to dock in Rotterdam in the Netherlands on April 3 before arriving in Suffolk three days later.

Salvage crews managed to refloat the Ever Given on Monday after it prevented hundreds of ships from sailing through the canal for nearly a week.

Many ships opted to take the longer detour round the African continent instead of waiting for it to be freed.

All ships arriving at the port in the next seven days are listed on the port's website.
