Experts are growing concerned that climate change could cause Italy's Mont Blanc Planpincieux glacier to collapse.

A team of experts has monitored the glacier for a decade and have found firm evidence of an increase in temperatures and detachment of ice on the mountain.

If temperatures continue to rise and the ice separates, then it could collapse on the town of Courmayeur, in the Aosta Valley below, causing deaths and widespread devastation.
