Yorkshire student named as Alps crash victim

by Elizabeth Archer

A Hull student who was killed in yesterday’s Alps crash has been described by his mother as “kind and loving”.

Paul Bramley, 28, has been named as one of three Britons who died in the crash while the plane was en-route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf.

Mr Bramley’s mother, Carol, said: “Paul was a kind, caring and loving son. He was the best son, he was my world.”

Paul had just finished his first year of study and was flying back to the UK via Dusseldorf to see his family.

His mother had already flown to the UK from Majorca to see him when she heard the news.

Mr Bramley’s father, Philip, who lives in Hull, said they are both deeply shocked and will miss him.

A statement from the Foreign Office said: “Paul was originally from Hull. He was studying hospitality and hotel management at Ceasar Ritz College in Lucerne and about to start an internship on April 1.

“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.”

Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond said that although three Britons have been named, he could not rule out the possibility that there are further British people involved.
