Five people have died after being caught in a major avalanche in northern Norway.

The casualties are reported to be four Swiss and one French citizen.

A sixth man was pulled out and taken to hospital with "moderate injuries".

They were part of a larger group of skiers which apparently split into two groups before the avalanche.

Around 30 rescue workers, assisted by dogs and helicopters, were dispatched in the search and rescue operation.
