Germanwings crash: Sick note torn up on day of accident

German prosecutors say they found torn-up sick notes in the homes of crash co-pilot Andreas Lubitz.

Mr Lubitz and 149 passengers and crew died when Germanwings flight 4U 9525 crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday.

Data from the plane's voice recorder suggest Mr Lubitz purposely started an eight-minute descent into mountains as the pilot was locked out of the cockpit.

Daniel Boettcher reports from Duesseldorf.
