Costa Concordia: Did the delay to abandon ship cost lives?

Some of the families of those still missing from the Costa Concordia have visited the wreck, while the rescue effort was hampered yet again as the sea threatened to shift the ship from the rocks.

It was the third time the operation had been called off since the ship ran aground off Italy's coast a week ago.

Hopes are fading for the 21 people still missing. Eleven are known to have died.

As Luisa Baldini reports, questions are being asked as to whether the delay to abandon ship could have cost lives.
