Scientists from Newcastle and York Universities have discovered giant channels beneath the Antarctic Ice shelf. The 250 metre high channels will help to predict the future of Antarctic ice.
They're almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower and stretch hundreds of kilometres along the ice shelf.
The channels are likely to influence the stability fo the shelf and their discovery will help researchers to understand how the ice will respond to changing environmental conditions.
Detectives investigating an indecent assault at York University last month have made an arrest.
