Cruise cancelled as ship is impounded

A Cruise Ship that had been due to sail from Avonmouth last week has been impounded in Dorset, leaving hundreds of passengers without a holiday. The Discovery should have set sail for Norway with travellers looking forward to seeing the Northern Lights.

But the vessel has been detained by the Maritime & Coastguard Agency. Passengers have contacted us to express their anger. Richard Payne reports.
