Local news station, BMFTV, have reported that a mountain guide and eight to nine skiers were swept away when the snow fell in an off-piste part of the resort.

The avalance was 400 metres wide, and there is "little hope" of finding people alive, the French National Police's general reserve said.

There are at least five people still missing, and two medical helicopters are on stand-by for those who remain in the snow.

If you have any sort of #FamilyGoals for the future, take a look at the royal family, because they are all the goals you need.

Kate amd William decided to take their two children on a ski holiday to the French Alps over the weekend – and the pictures are dreamy.

The family are seen having fun in the snow with two-year-old George and ten-month-old Charlotte. 

The Duke and Duchess made sure they had their privacy though, as they flew to a secret location last Wednesday during a media blackout to ensure they weren't followed. 

Unlike other royal ski trips, the couple decided not ot hold a photo-call but instead went for a singe Press Association photographer to capture a few beautiful moments.

We just can't get over how big George is getting and what a cutie Charlotte is. 

If this doesn't get you broody, we don't know what will.

Five schoolchildren are reportedly still missing after being swept away by an avalanche in the French Alps at around 4pm local time today.

The children were part of a group of around 10 students from Lyon who were skiiing in the Les Deux Alpes region with their teacher.

Four children are believed to have been found seriously injured, with some in a state of cardiac arrest according to local police. Their teacher was also found unconscious by a ski patrol.

All of those found were taken to hospital in nearby Grenoble.

According to the BBC, witnesses have reported that the avalanche seemed to have been triggered by a group skiing through the area.

Rescue helicopters and rescue personnel with dogs are still at the scene.

The Bellecombes piste is graded as a black slope, which is the steepest and most difficult rating.
