Thousands stranded in Swiss ski resort

More than 13,000 tourists have been left stranded in the Swiss resort of Zermatt, after heavy snow in the Alps cut off towns and villages across Switzerland, France and Italy.

The avalanche risk is set at the rarely used maximum on a five-point scale. This is the highest it has been for almost 10 years.

Trains have now started to move tourists from the resort.
