Scenes of glowing expanses of blue-white ice could soon be a thing of the past. At least in Switzerland, where the ice is melting on one of Europe's biggest glaciers.

Scientists warn that within 80 years the sea of ice now known as the Great Aletsch Glacier could be reduced to a body of water.

Situated on the south side of the Jungfrau mountain, the 23-kilometre-long mass is the longest in the Alps.
