    Three alpine skiers have died in an avalanche whilst hiking in the Italian Alps. A 60-year old and 50 year-old, both from Trento, were swept away on the mountain along with a 41-year old German from Munich.

    All three victims were caught out in the Ortles region of the alps, which towers over 3000 metres above sea level.
