The arrival of a drill ship in the River Thames drew a crowd this morning.
People watched from Gravesend promenade and pontoon as Sertao docked at Tilbury Power Station at around 10.45am, after travelling from Middlesbrough.
The ship was built in 2012 and it is thought it will be docked on the other side of the river for a year.
Drill ships are used in exploratory offshore drilling of new oil and gas wells or for scientific drilling purposes.
They are used in deepwater and ultra-deepwater.
Tug boats helped the ship dock.
