Guiding it safely is one of the many challenges faced on a daily basis by the team in Vessel Traffic Services in Southampton, who help to park up huge cruise liners as well as massive freighters like this. Meanwhile a team of swimmers are hoping to raise money for a children's intensive care unit by swimming to France and back again, but the thick fog in the Channel could put their whole attempt in jeopardy.
