It says that the vessel will stay put until safety issues over drills and training have been addressed.
Following inspections on Friday 1 March, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has issued a Detention Notice on the passenger ship Discovery, preventing the vessel from sailing at this time.
This will remain in place whilst the owners and crew undertake revisions to their safety management system."
