Passengers trapped in cable cars high over the slopes of Mont Blanc are being brought back to an altitude station after repairs to tangled cables were completed successfully, the cable car operator said.

Emergency workers scrambled at first light to rescue 33 people, including one child, who were stuck in the cars overnight.

The cable cars got stuck at an altitude of 3,800 metres last night, trapping around 110 people.
