Major landslide has struck the Italian Alps

Landslide Alert

Landslides over the Easter holiday weekend in the Italian Alps have been followed by a fresh fall of 20,000 cubic metres of rock and mud, forcing the Mont Blanc tunnel linking France and Italy to close briefly.

It is still not safe for dozens of people evacuated from the village of La Palud near the Courmayeur ski resort to return home.
