A Scandinavian sailing couple are loving life at the Tall Ships in Sunderland.

Viktor Rybka and Mie Schiett, from Norway, came in on the Sorlandet - the world's oldest and most authentic fully-rigged ship still in active service.

The pair learned their skills on the training ship the Danmark with the aim of working in the maritime industry.

It's Mie's first trip to England, and the second visit for Viktor.

She said: "English people are very nice, and it's great to be at the Tall Ships in Sunderland - it's a very good event. We're really looking forward to being part of the Tall Ships experience."
