 Surely the bridge has another person on at all times?

Not if the Masters standing orders/conditions don't require it.

10 months and a 12 page report to find out someone had gone for a shit. And they wonder why government are short of money.

This is a fairly standard time frame for a maritime investigation. 

Example 1: https://www.gov.uk/maib-reports/fumigant-poisoning-on-general-cargo-vessel-thorco-angela-with-1-person-injured 

Incident occurred 10th October 2021, report published 18th May 2022.

Example 2: https://www.gov.uk/maib-reports/two-catastrophic-engine-failures-one-resulting-in-a-fire-on-board-ro-ro-passenger-ferry-wight-sky

Incident occurred 26th August 2018, report published 28th April 2022.

I do not think on this occasion IoMG can be blamed for the length. They would have been required to go through all sorts, especially as they are not the flag state of the vessel and the Transport Accident and Incident Investigation Bureau in Latvia are responsible for the investigation.
