A six-year-old girl is being sued for €38,000 (£25,000) in Austria for causing a skiing accident.

An adult woman is taking legal action against the child over a collision on the ski slopes which she claims left her with serious injuries.

It appears the highly unusual case was brought after the courts dismissed an earlier attempt to sue the adult who was supervising the child at the time of the accident.

A judge will now have to decide whether the six-year-old can be held legally responsible for her actions.

None of those involved have been named under strict Austrian privacy laws.
