Family of critically ill British snowboarder fly to France

Relatives of the British student who remains critically ill after a snowboarding accident in the French Alps have flown to France to be by her side.

Emily Watts' parents, Nicky and Dominic, along with her 27-year-old brother Rory, have all travelled to the hospital in Annecy where she is being treated.

It took several days for French authorities to notify her parents because she was not wearing any form of identification.
