Three more foreign flagged vessels were detained in UK ports during November 2016 after failing Port State Control (PSC) inspection, the country’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said.
Apart from the newly detained vessels, four ships including Malaviya Seven, Sea Trident, Southern Star and Cien Porciento remained under detention from previous months.
Ships detained in November include Daroja, Atlantic Surveyor and Royal Harmony.
The Cyprus-flagged general cargo vessel Daroja was detained on November 29 at Aberdeen and it was still detained on November 30.
The second vessel, the Liberia-flagged offshore supply ship Atlantic Surveyor, was put under detention on November 17 at Shoreham and remained under detention at the end of the month.
The third ship, the Panama-flagged bulk carrier Royal Harmony was detained on November 16 at Southampton and it was not released by the end of the month.
