A gigantic grain ship could be seen loading up at Great Yarmouth’s outer harbour, providing a boost to the East Anglian economy.

Trevor Gates, Gleadell’s East Anglia regional manager, said: “We have just loaded the largest ship ever in Norfolk and Suffolk at our Great Yarmouth export/import terminal.

“This week, Mv Zapolyarye took on close to 19,000 tonnes of 72 kg feed wheat bound for Portugal.

“This is yet another example of the way our export campaign is providing market outlets for East Anglian farmers in a difficult season.”
