At least four killed in avalanche near Tignes ski resort in French Alps

Rescuers search for the missing after the snowslide strikes near a busy, Alpine ski resort during the school half-term holidays.

At least four people have been killed and several others swept away in an avalanche near a major ski resort in the French Alps.

Five people remain trapped beneath the 400-metre-wide snowslide which hit an off-piste slope near the ski resort of Tignes, close to the Italian border.

Staff at the resort saw the wall of snow barrel down the mountain at 9.35am on Monday and raised the alarm.

Two helicopters, diggers and sniffer dogs are helping around 40 rescuers with shovels - including volunteers - search for survivors.
