HUNDREDS of businesses will flock to Southampton’s docks as an annual marine exhibition returns to the city.

The 17th Seawork event will take place in the Canary Islands Fruit Terminal from today to Thursday.

Six hundred exhibitors will take part in the event, with marine firms travelling from as far as the USA, China and Australia.

There will also be more than 60 vessels outside the exhibition halls on 250 metres of pontoons, while there will also be free talks and conferences on subjects such as the offshore wind industry and the use of glycerine as fuel.
