Switzerland’s main north-south railway has been re-opened to goods trains one month after it was closed because of a landslide.

The line, which passes under the Gotthard mountain range, was due to reopen to passenger trains on Tuesday.

Up to 3,000 cubic metres of debris blocked the line at the beginning of June killing a railway worker.
