Could the Arctic be where the next Cold War happens?
There's a warning from MPs that melting Arctic ice is giving ships better access to the area, which could open it up to exploitation.
With a wealth of natural resources, including oil, military action in the Arctic has increased and it's feared there could be a "great power competition" in the region.
The defence sub-committee say it's a place where Russia might seek to expand its presence and influence and MPs say it "seems clear that greater dangers lie ahead" if action isn't taken.
