Boy (7) killed in skiing accident

A seven-year-old boy who died in a French skiing accident has been named as Carwyn Scott-Howell from Wales.

The youngster is thought to have fallen 160 feet after losing his way on a family holiday in the Alpine resort of Flaine on Friday.

He is believed to have become separated from his family, who raised the alarm when he failed to make it to the bottom of the slopes.

A local newspaper said the boy appears to have gone off-piste before falling at least 160 feet from a rocky outcrop.
