'I don't blame co-pilot' - victim's girl


The girlfriend of a Briton who died in the French Alps air disaster has told how he switched flights "at the last moment" and said she did not blame the co-pilot who crashed the jet.

Paul Bramley (28) died when Andreas Lubitz locked the Germanwings flight's captain out of the cockpit before flying the plane into a mountainside, killing all 150 people on board.

But girlfriend Anneli Tiirik said she did not blame Lubitz (27) who had hidden a sick note on the day of the crash and was found to have researched suicide methods in the days leading up to it.

"I cannot hate or blame someone for being sick.

We should concentrate on changing the system that enables such people to be in positions of power."
