A ship in Great Yarmouth is to be inspected after a vessel in Aberdeen, owned by the same company, was detained for not paying staff wages.
A spokesperson for the Maritime & Coastguard Agency said: 'The vessel has been detained under the Merchant Shipping Regulations 2013, for non-payment of seafarers' wages and for not fully complying with the requirements for seafarers' employment agreements.
'The detention will remain in place until the seafarers wages are paid and other identified deficiencies are rectified.
'A second vessel from the same company is being inspected by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency in Great Yarmouth for similar reasons.'
