FERRYMEN IN BOOZE PROBE.
An investigation was launched after passengers complained that crew members were drunk.
Ken Groat, Tjornborn Riise and Stewart Hunter now face an inquiry by council bosses on Shetland.
Passengers claimed two of the crew were rolling around the deck of the roll- on roll-off ferry between Lerwick and Bressay.
Two of the men are also accused of leaving the untrained third man to steer the 420-ton, 102ft vessel, which carries 100 passengers and eight cars.
The incident allegedly happened during a Sunday sailing of the Leirna last month.
Shetland Islands Council, who own the vessel, and the Marine Safety Agency have both launched inquiries.
The council refused to comment last night, and at his home on Bressay, Ken Groat said: "I'm not allowed to say anything about this."
