20 July 2013 Last updated at 18:47 BST

A court in Italy has convicted five people of manslaughter over the Costa Concordia shipwreck off Giglio island which killed 32 people in January 2012.

Two officers, the helmsman, the head of cabin service and the head of the crisis team were given up to two years and 10 months in jail for multiple manslaughter, negligence and shipwreck.

They had agreed plea bargains and may avoid custodial sentences.

Capt Francesco Schettino is being tried separately.
