Fryup has a jolt before breakfast!
AN early morning rumbling was yesterday recorded deep below the hamlet of Fryup, say earthquake experts.
The British Geological Survey said there were no reports that anyone felt the 5am quake, which had a magnitude of 2.8.
Seismologist David Galloway said normally an earthquake of that strength would be noticed but this one was nearly 19 miles below the surface.
He said: “If it was shallower, we’d expect to have had a few further reports by now.
“The time of day it happened also influences this as well.”
The earthquake was so deep it could only have happened naturally, it was understood, and was nothing to do with any human activity.
Fryup is in the North York Moors National Park and has no pub or shops.
Its unusual name was nothing to do with English breakfasts but was thought to be honouring the Anglo-Saxon goddess Frige.
“From artificially intelligent drones to automated guns that can choose their own targets, technological advances in weaponry are far outpacing international law.
“A ban on fully autonomous weapons systems could prevent a new high-tech arms race between world superpowers which would cause autonomous weapons to proliferate widely.
“We are calling on states to come up with an ambitious mandate to address the numerous risks posed by autonomous weapons.”
