This is the ship whose Polish captain plotted a course direct from Perth, Scotland to Antwerp, Belgium, forgetting that the Farne Islands are in the way. This happened in March 2013. His lookout fell asleep so they ran aground on the islands. Both captain and lookout have since been sacked, unsurprisingly.
