Mudslide erupts in Swiss village

A massive mudslide has been filmed crashing down a mountain into a Swiss village, narrowly avoiding onlookers and damaging cars and buildings.

According to Swiss media, the mudslide began in a stream above the village of Grugnay on Tuesday, and was triggered by heavy rains.

People in the area moved off the road to make way for the earth and debris, as it sped down the slope, sweeping up trees and cars in its path.
