Helicopter rescue after skiers are stranded on cable car

Two hundred tourists have had a dramatic rescue from stranded cable cars at a ski resort in northern Italy.

The skiers were suspended in mid-air and buffeted by high winds for several hours.

Eventually mountain rescue teams were lowered by helicopter, to take them to safety.
