Ship released after owner pays crew's overdue wages
Past and present workers on the Malaviya Seven were reportedly owed around £175,000.
A ship detained because its crew had not been paid in months has been allowed to leave the UK.
The owner of the Malaviya Seven reportedly owed past and present crew members around £175,000.
It was detained at Aberdeen harbour by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) in June and held for nearly two months before GOL Offshore paid the crew.
Another ship owned by the firm, the Malaviya Twenty, was held in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, for similar reasons.
The Malaviya Seven was released on Thursday morning and will now be allowed to return to India.
It had been contracted to BP between June 1 and June 15.
