Germanwings crash: Second Alps flight recorder found

Authorities in France say the second flight recorder has been found from the wreckage of the Germanwings plane which crashed in the Alps last week.

The flight's voice recorder suggested co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately caused the disaster, by locking the senior pilot out of the cockpit and putting the plane into a premature descent.

It is hoped the second recorder will provide more flight data, which may paint a clearer picture of what happened.
