Costa Concordia: Ship's previous close pass of Giglio


The Costa Concordia sailed closer to Giglio island last August than it did on Friday, according to satellite tracking information given to the BBC by the shipping journal, Lloyd's List Intelligence.

Lloyd's List told the BBC's Newsnight programme the vessel passed within 230m of the island on 14 August 2011 to mark La Notte di San Lorenzo - the night of the shooting stars festival on the island.

Amateur footage from the island shows the cruise ship as it passed the island last year.

Joe Lynam reports.
