Rebecca Ratcliffe (The Guardian)
At least three Britons are among the 150 people who died in the French Alps plane crash, the UK foreign secretary, Philip Hammond, has said.
Paul Bramley, 28, a student from Hull, and Martyn Matthews, 50, the father of two grownup children from Wolverhampton, have both been named by the Foreign Office as victims.
The family of UK resident Marina Bandrés López-Belio and her seven-month-old baby Julian, a British national, have also confirmed they were on the Germanwings Airbus A320 flight.
López-Belio, who lived in Manchester, had bought a last minute ticket to visit her family in Spain for her uncle’s funeral, her husband, Pawel Pracz, said in a statement.

Germanwings crash: One pilot was 'locked out of the cockpit before Alps crash', claim US reports
Bob Williams (The Independent)
A senior military official, reportedly working on the extracted cockpit voice recordings from one of the black boxes of the Airbus plane that smashed into the Alps, has told the New York Times that one of the pilots left the cockpit and was unable to return before the plane went down.
Citing evidence from a cockpit voice recorder, the unnamed investigator told the newspaper: "The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer".
"And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer," he continues.
"You can hear he is trying to smash the door down," the investigator added.

Grim search

Crews face grim week-long task of recovering Germanwings crash victims from mountain
Cyril Dixon (The Express)
Yesterday police were posted for a second night to stop wolves from scavenging in the wreckage and set up roadblocks to keep trespassers away.
Salvage workers, who were winched down by helicopter and worked roped together, said the rugged terrain and bad weather meant it would take at least a week to recover the victims.
More than 300 police officers and 380 firefighters have joined the search.
The site near the hamlet Le Vernet is accessible only via helicopter or a long hike.
Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin said the operation would be painstaking because the “aircraft had been literally ripped apart”.

German pupils nearly missed doomed Germanwings flight
Ashifa Kassam (The Guardian)
A group of German teenagers killed in the Germanwings air crash almost missed the doomed flight after one of the students forgot her identification document, according to officials in the Catalan town where they had been on an exchange visit.
The group, which included 16 students and two teachers, had spent a week in the town of Llinars del Vallès. As the host families dropped them off at the train station on Tuesday morning, 35 miles from Barcelona’s El Prat airport, one of the German teenagers realised she had left her identification card at her host family’s home, town officials told the Guardian. In order to make sure she didn’t hold the group back and cause them to miss the flight, the father of her host family rushed her home to retrieve the necessary identification and then drove her directly to the airport, sources said. “It’s heartbreaking for the family,” said the town official.
On Wednesday, the town marked the tragedy with a memorial service at the high school that had hosted the exchange students just days before. At midday, residents gathered in front of the town council building to observe a minute of silence.
