An iceberg the size of Manhattan that has broken off a glacier in Antarctica and could threaten shipping lanes is being tracked by a team led by the University of Sheffield.

Prof Grant Bigg, of the Department of Geography, said: “Its current movement does not raise environmental issues, however a previous giant iceberg from this location eventually entered the South Atlantic and if this happens it could potentially pose a hazard to ships.”
