    A British skier has fallen to his death in the French Alps, authorities have confirmed.

    The man – part of a trio who went off-piste in the Alpe d’Huez ski resort – died after falling from a “cliff”, a mountain rescue spokesperson said.

    A second skier who fell was injured in the “steep and icy” conditions, but survived. The third was unharmed and both men were rescued.

    The Foreign Office said it was giving support to the dead man’s family.
