Bodies of two British climbers recovered from the Matterhorn


The bodies of two British climbers have been recovered from the Matterhorn in the Alps after they went missing in bad weather.

The two men sent out an alert on Friday when they got caught on the mountain as storms came in and temperatures plummeted.

Rescuers were unable to reach because of high winds but finally located them on Saturday morning, Italian mountain rescue said.

The men's bodies were found on rocks buried in snow and have now been recovered.
