Malaviya Seven

An offshore supply ship has been detained in Aberdeen on the grounds of non-payment of crew wages.

The Malaviya Seven will stay at port until the workers are paid, according to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

It was detained under merchant shipping regulations.

The RMT union said 15 people on board had not been paid for almost two months. A vessel in Great Yarmouth has been detained for similar reasons.
