The Mumbai-registered Malaviya Twenty moored on the River Yare at Yarmouth. She had been impounded in July 2016 for her owners' non-payment of the crew's wages and for other offences. Two months later, the vessel was released from detention but it was 're-arrested' in December that year. I don't know the present legal situation but the crew has been paid and repatriated.

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

Not an isolated occurrence...............the abuse of seafarers is becoming all the more common nowadays with crew being forced to work dangerously long hours for little (and sometimes no) pay..!!

Rant over! This is a superb image Roger..........clean, sharp and colourful.

Thanks.

It's a topic you'd obviously be aware of. At the time, I was just taking a picture of an interesting (and lightly-loaded) ship. Not until I started researching the caption did I find out what I was seeing evidence of.

I know it happened also to a whole merchant line recently.

So hard on the sailors.
