The first rail freight service from the UK to China is scheduled to depart today.

Thirty containers filled with British produced goods are setting off on the 7,500-mile journey from Stanford-le-Hope, Essex.

Whisky, soft drinks, vitamins, pharmaceuticals and baby products are among the items being exported.

A DB Cargo locomotive is set to leave the DP World London Gateway rail terminal.

After passing through the Channel Tunnel into France and on to Belgium, the train will call in Duisburg, Germany before InterRail pull the cargo through Poland, Belarus, Russia, Kazahkstan and arrive at Yiwu, eastern China on April 27.

It is departing almost three months after the first freight service from China to the UK arrived in east London.
