The mother of Paul Andrew Bramley, who died in the Alps air disaster, has paid a loving tribute to the 28-year-old student, describing him as "her world".
In a statement released by the Foreign Office, his mother Carole said:
Paul was a kind, caring and loving son. He was the best son, he was my world.
Originally from Hull, Paul was studying hospitality and hotel management at Ceasar Ritz College in Lucerne and about to start an internship on 1 April.
Paul had just finished his first year at the college and had taken a few days holiday with friends in Barcelona, before flying back to the UK via Dusseldorf to meet his family, the Foreign Office said.
Paul’s father Philip Bramley, who still lives in Hull, said the family is deeply shocked and will miss him dearly.
During a visit to the crash site, the boss of Lufthansa has avoided reporters' questions about the co-pilot's known depression.

Pilots with a history of depression should not be banned from flying, a leading British psychiatrist has said.
