Whip up a quick 500,000 ton supertanker going up the Thames at 30 knots

A new (to me) "safe water" AIS target has just appeared in the approaches to St. Malo, named "Atterage".

I'm assuming it's a permanent fixture, looks like these virtual A2N's are taking off

Software fault apparently.
Wasn't it Longhope's Tamar that hit a fishing boat and ran up the beach due to a software fault. No MAIB report as the RNLI held their own internal investigation.
