Additionally, the 1982-built passenger/cargo ship Gann was detained at Sunderland on May 8, with fourteen deficiencies and one ground for detention. Gann, which flies the flag of Norway, was released from detention a day later.

The third ship, Ana M, was put under detention at Avonmouth on May 30 after an inspection found nine deficiencies with four grounds for arrest. The Liberia-flagged bulk carrier was still detained on May 31.

Three ships remained under detention from previous months. They include Malaviya Seven, Sea Trident and Cien Porciento.

As disclosed, a total of four vessels remained under detention at the end of May.
