The Valdostano Alpine Rescue aircraft on Monday, searching for two British and two French skiers who were reported missing a day earlier, spotted three bodies. The man was killed and the woman recovering in hospital. Friends had raised the alarm when the group failed to turn up at an agreed meeting point. They were on the last day of their holiday, the newspaper said. They had reportedly crossed by chance in the area where the avalanche hit.

Search operations were hampered by the continuing risk of avalanches, preventing search teams from going on foot, and search efforts had to temporarily suspended on Sunday.

Six died in the region of Val d'Aosta, on the French border, while another skier died in Lombardy and another in the South Tyrol region of north-eastern Italy.
