Tall ship ARC Gloria was last seen the Pool of London in 2011.

This latest visit was the culmination of the Colombia Day event held in Potters Fields Park on Sunday as part of the Totally Thames festival.

The event included music, craft stalls and food and drink. Several Southwark-based Latin American businesses – such as La Bodeguita at Elephant & Castle – took part in the festivities.
