From the BBC news site


All 35 Britons who were on board the Costa Concordia are safe, Foreign Secretary William Hague has said.
He told Sky News the 23 passengers and 12 crew had been accounted for, but had been through a "very dreadful and distressing experience".

Three people are so far confirmed dead and about 40 are unaccounted for after the ship hit a rock off the Italian coast on Friday.

Earlier a honeymooning British couple told how they used a ladder to escape.

Ian and Janice Donoff climbed out on to the side of the stricken vessel after lifeboats failed to release.

They were eventually lowered down a rope ladder to awaiting life rafts.

I always see both sides of the argument, the one that's wrong and mine.....
