An inquest into the death of a Hull man who died in the Germanwings plane crash has been adjourned.

Paul Bramley, 28, was one of three Britons killed in the tragedy in the French Alps earlier this year.

Hull Coroner’s Court heard how he had been flying from Barcelona to Dusseldorf on March 24.

Coroner’s officer Keith Baskill said Mr Bramley was identified by DNA analysis. The French death certificate stated the cause of death was “severe corporeal destruction” due to a commercial airline plane crash.

Authorities in France and Germany have found evidence suggesting co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed the plane after locking the pilot out of the cockpit. A total of 149 people were killed.

Professor Paul Marks, Hull coroner, has adjourned the inquest until all investigations have been carried out.

Martyn Matthews, 50, a senior quality manager from Wolverhampton, and Julian Pracz-Bandres, aged seven months, from Manchester, were the other British victims.
