Costa Concordia wreck arriving in Genoa for scrapping

27 July 2014 Last updated at 11:11 BST

The wrecked Italian cruise ship, the Costa Concordia, has arrived in waters near the port of Genoa for scrapping after a two-year salvage operation.

Its removal was one of the biggest ever maritime salvage operations.

The Concordia struck a reef off the Italian island of Giglio in January 2012 and capsized, killing 32 people.

Alan Johnston reports from Italy.
