Germanwings plane crash: Co-pilot 'crashed deliberately'

A senior French prosecutor has told a press conference that the co-pilot of the Germanwings plane which crashed into the French Alps appears to have done it deliberately.

He described in detail what investigators had found on the cockpit voice recorder, saying that after the pilot left the cockpit to go to the toilet, then the German co-pilot Andreas Lubitz put the plane into an accelerated descent.

He did not to allow the captain back inside the cockpit. All 150 people on board were killed.

Damian Grammaticas reports.
