The 53-year-old Russian captain of the ship Norrvik, which went aground at Gisseløre in Kalundborg on Saturday night, has been detained for four weeks. Both the captain and the ship's officer were drunk when the ship was grounded, the Central and West Zealand police stated to TV ØST.

The captain was detained on Tuesday afternoon at the court in Holbæk. At the same hearing, the vessel's steering officer maintained his arrest three times 24 hours.

The ship managed to free itself and docked in Kalundborg when a sail ban was issued. Norrvik is operated by Baltic Shipping Company, headquartered in Hundested. The ship is 3,254 DWT and sails under the Isle of Mans flag. It was built in 1979.
