Passenger's fears for others on board Costa Concordia

At least three people are reported to have died after a cruise ship ran aground off the coast of Tuscany in Italy.

Coastguards were forced to evacuate more than 4,000 passengers and crew from the Costa Concordia, near to the island of Isola del Giglio.

The ship had sailed earlier on Friday from Civitavecchia port near Rome for a Mediterranean cruise.

One passenger, Monica, broke down in tears as she recalled her fears for her fellow travellers.
