Engineers in Italy have succeeded in setting the cruise ship Costa Concordia upright, 20 months after it ran aground off the island of Giglio.

 

They said that the unprecedented salvage effort "reached degree zero, which was our target".

 

In the operation that took all of Monday and most of the night, they used cables and metal boxes filled with water to roll the ship onto a platform.
