WITH the sun setting over Portsmouth Harbour Ben Fogle arrived in style.

The TV presenter and adventurer zoomed into Gunwharf Quays yesterday evening aboard a speedboat after travelling from Poole.

He put out a call on Twitter for someone to help him reach the city and his plea was answered by speedboat driver Tom Montgomery-Swan.

Ben said: ‘The trip was absolutely incredible – I think we managed to reach just over 100mph.’

He was in town to give a talk at Portsmouth Grammar School about his latest book – The Accidental Naturalist.
