Continental Airlines faces a trial on Tuesday over the Concorde Paris crash 10 years ago which killed 113 people.

The airline and two former staff allegedy failed to maintain a DC-10 aircraft blamed for causing the incident.

The supersonic aircraft crashed after taking off from Charles de Gaulle on its way to New York in July 2000.

Investigations have concluded that a piece of metal had fallen off  a Continental Airlines flight which then hit the Concorde flight.

Continental has denied responsibility for the crash.
