A ship that's been detained off the coast at Fowey in Cornwall because of safety failings could now be arrested because its crew haven't been paid.

The 12 crew members want to leave the Turkish owned 'Munzur', which would be sold, with the money used to pay their wages.

They're owed more than 35 thousand dollars.
