Ships heading around the tip of South America should be on their guard as one of the largest icebergs ever recorded is likely to head in that direction.
The giant, 5,800 sq km iceberg broke away from the Antarctic peninsula earlier this week and is now adrift in the Weddell Sea.
Weighing more than a trillion tonnes, the iceberg is twice the size of Luxembourg, and is likely to head north, according to scientists.
The threat to shipping will come when the iceberg starts to break up. In its current state it is easy to keep track of via satellites. However, as it breaks it up it could become a serious hazard to vessels in the area.
