The Port of Felixstowe has begun dredging one million cubic metres of sea bed as it prepares for more expansion.

Hutchison Ports, which owns the freight terminal in Suffolk, is extending berths eight and nine by 200yds (190m).

The quay and approaches are being dredged to a depth of 59ft (18m) to allow larger container ships to dock.

The extended berths at the southern end of the port are due to be completed by mid-2015.
