THE COSTA CONCORDIA has been shipwrecked off Tuscan coast ever since it sank in January 2012 leaving 32 people dead.

In that time it’s been partly lifted off the seabed but Tuscan police have now released a video filmed by divers as they squeeze through the underwater corridors and quarters of the 290m long cruise ship.

The Costa Concordia is scheduled to be re-floated  later this month before it is towed 280km to Genoa where it will be scrapped.
