144 passengers and six crew all feared dead after plane crashes in French Alps en route from Spain to Germany

All 144 passengers and six crew were today presumed dead after an Airbus A320 crashed in a remote region of the French Alps en route from Spain to Germany.

Flight 4U9525 disappeared from radar in the Alpes de Hautes Provence after sending a distress signal at 10.47am local time (9.47am GMT).
Debris from the jet, operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline, has been found scattered over a wide area near Barcelonnette.
French president Francois Hollande said that he did not expect there to be any survivors. 
He said: 'It's a loss, a tragedy which has happened on our soil. 
'I am seeking information about homes in the area it came down. It's difficult place to access. In the meantime solidarity must prevail.'
