Costa Concordia: Cruise ship Britons return to UK


The owners of the cruise ship that capsized off Italy on Friday, killing at least six, says the captain appears to have "committed errors".

Capt Francesco Schettino is suspected of manslaughter, but denies wrongdoing.

All 35 British people on board have been confirmed safe and well. There have been emotional reunions at Heathrow airport as some of them returned to the UK.
