Costa Concordia 'out by September'

The wreck of the Costa Concordia cruise ship in Italy will be removed by September at the latest, officials overseeing the work have said.
It has been lying on its side off the island of Giglio, on the coast of Tuscany, since it ran aground a year ago with the loss of more than 30 lives.
The islanders are desperate to see it go as they depend almost entirely on tourism, the BBC's Alan Johnston reports from Rome.
