Scientists warn Earth’s magnetic North Pole has begun moving ‘erratically’ at speeds so fast they are having to issue an emergency update to maps used by electronic navigation systems

  • Magnetic North Pole is ‘skittering’ away from Canada, towards Siberia 
  • Researchers say it is moving at an ‘unusually high speed of about 50 km per year’
  • Say Canada is essentially losing a magnetic tug-of-war with Siberia
  • Researchers around the world are scrambling to update global models relied on by GPS navigation systems
