The cruiseliner Costa Concordia will be refloated in a matter of weeks in a mission that is expected to cost in the region of £400m.

As part of the mammoth salvage operation, 18,000 tonnes of concrete have been used to build a platform underneath the partially sunken ship, ready for it to be winched upright. A team of 500 engineers are working on the mission, which will set insurance companies back nearly £30m more than the original cost of building the ship.
