French investigators have published their final report into the Germanwings tragedy last march making 11 safety recommendations.

The specialist Aviation Law team at Irwin Mitchell represents all the British families who lost loved ones when Germanwings Flight 9525 crashed in the French Alps killing all 150 people on-board.
 
It has since been revealed that the co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had deliberately crashed the plane and had previously been treated for depression and mental health issues, including seeing doctors 41 times in the years preceding the crash.

Clive Garner, head of the international personal injury team at Irwin Mitchell which represents British and Spanish families affected by the crash said: “The report and the safety recommendations echo reforms that we and the families we represent have previously called for but we have concerns that there are some crucial elements still to investigate.
