A yacht made out of 12,500 recycled plastic bottles has docked in Sydney Harbour after a four-month, 8,000-mile crossing of the Pacific.

The crew of the Plastiki, a 60ft catamaran, left San Francisco on March 20.

Expedition leader David de Rothschild decided the voyage would be an effective way to prove that rubbish can be recycled.
