Concordia Salvage Bid Underway


This is the day that could be the beginning of the end of the wreck of the Costa Concordia. The complex and painstaking operation to right it, refloat it and tow it away for scrap began early on Monday. It's expected to take about 12 hours to roll the 114, 000 tonne wreck upright. Salvage master Nicholas Sloane said ahead of the start of the operation that the wreck responded positively in tests.
