Germanwings crash: Co-pilot Lubitz 'sped descent'

French investigators have said data from the second black box shows the co-pilot who crashed the Germanwings plane, deliberately accelerated its descent.

They say Andreas Lubitz modified the automatic pilot system several times to increase the speed of descent.

The information they recovered also confirms earlier findings that Lubitz deliberately crashed the plane.

All 150 people on board died. The BBC's Jenny Hill reports.
