The Costa Concordia cruise ship is set to be hauled upright for the first time since it partially capsized in January 2012.

The Costa Concordia cruise ship is set to be hauled upright for the first time since it partially capsized after striking rocks off the Italian island of Giglio in January 2012.

More than 500 salvage workers have been working on the Italian cruise liner, which will be rolled onto a specially built steel and cement platform on the sea bed, subject to suitable weather conditions.
