    Fourteen people were killed and a child left seriously injured after a cable car in northern Italy plunged to the ground in the country’s latest transport disaster.

    Early reports suggested that a cable may have snapped, sending the cable car and the 15 people inside it hurtling 20 metres (65ft) to the ground. It rolled over several times before smashing into trees and coming to a halt near Lake Maggiore.

    The force of the impact was so great that several bodies were flung into the surrounding forest, while others remained trapped inside.
