Sketch of the fracture network on the left (the blue line is the pre-existing fracture and red lines represent the wing cracks) and evolution of a fluid pressure and b fracture aperture. Black dashed lines indicate the fracture segment intersection points. The coloured points indicate the seismic hypocentres and their magnitudes (cyan: M < 0, green 0 ≤ M<1, yellow: 1 ≤ M<1.5, red: 1.5 ≤ M<2 and pink: M ≥ 2)
