The company in charge of a boat that has been moored off the coast of Cornwall for months, leaving crew living in filthy conditions, has agreed to pay all wages owed to them and help them to return home.
The International Transport Workers’ Federation says the Munzur, which is detained in Fowey, says two washing machines have been delivered to allow crew members to wash clothes and bedding.
The ITF believes that as well as paying the owed money the company is likely to sign an ITF agreement which will hold them to providing decent pay and conditions for crew in the future.
