Passengers: Costa Concordia captain's actions 'disgusting'

The captain of the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia has been found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Captain Francesco Schettino was at the helm when the ship hit rocks and sank in 2012, killing 32 people.

He was accused of taking the liner too close to the shore and then abandoning ship with passengers and crew still on board.

Husband and wife Ian and Janice Donoff were passengers on the ferry who were eventually rescued. They told the BBC's Clive Myrie that they were disgusted by the captain's actions that night.
