- The Costa Concordia capsized off the Italian island of Giglio on January 13 2012 after it struck rocks.
- Thirty-two people were killed in the disaster and two bodies are still missing.
- The reef sliced a 70-metre long gash into what is now the exposed side of the hull, letting seawater rush in.
- The salvage team will attempt to rotate the ship by 65 degrees so it can eventually be towed.
- The ship is the length of three football pitches and weighs 114,000 tonnes.
- The project has cost £500 million to date.
The brother of a waiter whose body has not been recovered from the Costa Concordia, hopes the search team will find his remains.
The operation to shift the stricken Costa Concordia ship from the rocks off the Italian island of Giglio has been completed.
Engineers successfully shifted the wreckage of the stricken ship from rocks, but the salvage operation is expected to go on into the night.
