Crew 'arrest' ship moored off Cornwall

A Turkish ship which has been moored off the coast of Cornwall for months has been "arrested" by its own crew.

They claim they haven't been paid and are living in horrendous conditions off Fowey.

They say they have been unable to get any agreement from the owners and are about to seize the vessel and hold it against the money they're owed.
