Residents of the world's tallest apartment building have been told they will have to climb more than 1,300 steps to their homes after the building's elevators failed.
The residents all live at the prestigious Princess Towers in Dubai, but have been told that a problem with hosing has caused the block's eight elevators to fail.
The 1,300 steps mean the equivalent of climbing a third of the height of Mount Everest each day to get home.

Residents of the penthouse suites, who paid more than $3 million for their homes, have been told that spare parts are being flown in from Finland but until they arrive, there is no choice but to climb.
A service elevator has been made available for "limited" trips to the 50th floor, but anyone wanting to get the rest of the way to the 97th floor will have to rely on leg power.
