#Cattleships – The livestock vessel Express 1, which was detained in Fowey for five weeks to undergo urgent maintenance is likely to leave the port this week, writes This Is Cornwall.

The vessel has remained in Fowey since early February after concerns were raised about the state of the ship, including the "appalling" living conditions for the crew. In February, the vessel was towed into the port after it suffered engine failure off the Lizard.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) inspected the 7,000-tonne ship shortly after its arrival and slapped its owners with a detention notice – meaning it couldn't depart until necessary improvements were made.

The vessel which was bound for Waterford, was due to depart last Friday and as previouly reported on, for only for the MCA to decide it still wasn't ready. For more on this story, click HERE.
