Alps crash: Remains of crash victims return home

A cortege carrying the coffins of German schoolchildren killed in the Germanwings plane crash has arrived in their home town of Haltern.

Earlier, relatives of 44 of the 150 victims viewed their coffins inside a hangar at Duesseldorf airport.

The victims' remains are the first to be repatriated following delays over errors on the death certificates.

Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz is believed to have deliberately crashed the Airbus A320 into the French Alps in March.

Jenny Hill reports.
