Cops hunt for miss­ing skier

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are search­ing for a Bri­tish skier who went miss­ing in “ter­ri­ble weather” in the French Alps.

John Bromell, 39, from Willing­ham by Stow, near Gains­bor­ough, Lincs, was last seen on the Paquis chair­lift in Tignes at 4.30pm on Sun­day.

Friends said they were con­cerned for his safety es­pe­cially – be­cause of the de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in the weather.

Ac­cord­ing to lo­cal re­ports, there was more than 3ft of snow in the re­sort on Mon­day, prompt­ing a warn­ing of avalanches.

French po­lice said they has been ham­pered by the con­di­tions but had now de­ployed a he­li­copter to try and lo­cate Mr Bromell.
