Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who crashed the Germanwings plane reportedly hid details of an illness he had from his employers.

BBC reports that torn-up sick notes were found in his home including one covering the day of the crash.

The illness has however not been disclosed by  Duesseldorf prosecutors.

German media have, however, said aviation authority documents suggested he suffered depression and required ongoing assessment.

There was also no evidence of a political or religious motive to his actions, nor was a suicide note found.

According to a report from the prosecutors,  medical documents from Lubitz's two residences (his flat and his parent's home) indicated "an existing illness and appropriate medical treatment".

But "the fact that, among the documents found, there were sick notes - torn-up, current and for the day of the crash - leads to the provisional assessment that the deceased was hiding his illness from his employer".
