German police officers say they have uncovered what they call a ‘significant’ clue inside the Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz.
In a statement, an officer from Dusseldorf Police said: ‘We have found something which will now be taken for tests. We cannot say what it is at the moment but it may be very significant clue to what has happened.
“We hope it may give some explanations.”
Police also searched another property, located in the town of Montabaur, that is believed to belong to Lubitz’s parents.
It also emerged yesterday that the flight’s captain may have used an axe in an attempt to break down the cockpit door, which Lubitz had locked from the inside.
It is now known that Lubitz deliberately brought the plane down into the French Alps, killing all onboard.
