Efforts to free the giant container ship are continuing after the 400m-long vessel became stuck in the Suez canal.

The blockage has caused an extensive traffic jam, with more than 100 ships laden with cargo including oil, automotive parts and consumer goods waiting to get through one of the world’s key trade arteries
