The ongoing corona crisis has forced the closure of ski resorts in France and Switzerland leaving many people facing an anxious journey home.

There are currently over 30,000 British tourists at ski resorts in France. On Saturday evening, resorts were closed as plans began to be put in place to get people home. This situation is ongoing and will hopefully become clearer later today.
