SCHOOLCHILDREN tragically killed in the Germanwings air crash have today returned home in a convoy of white hearses.

The teenagers, who were killed when co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed an Airbus 320 into the French Alps, were taken from Dusseldorf Airport to their hometown on Haltern in north west Germany.

It comes after the process of repatriating the bodies was delayed by an administrative errorwhich rendered the victims’ death certificates invalid.

Their families had to wait 11 weeks to get their loved ones back following the Germanwings crash on March 24.

White hearses carried the remains of 15 of the 16 schoolchildren killed in the tragedy while two of their teachers were in black hearses.

Parents and relatives viewed the coffins inside an airport hangar before the convoy set off.
