Saw some footage today of the inside and it was so very sad to see, I think Green Peace should keep out of it with the amount of work that has been undertaken to ensure safe removal the Concordia needs to be gone as soon as it is possible.

I wonder if that means that Greenpeace would be happy for it to be towed to India and beached for breaking up - along with numerous other ships - and cause further pollution there. Surely they don't want to leave it where it is! It certainly won't just disappear.

Such an horrific tragedy, for everyone involved.  Still makes me go cold when I see the pictures.  The engineers that have been working on her have had such a difficult job, but let hope that finally she will be moved.

Hello,I have just had another look on the Giglio web cam and the difference between the last time I looked and now is incredible.Titan press release earlier today stated that she had lifted 11 metres.When they have lifted 3 mor metres they can begin towing.It looks to me like a tug is in position.There was some small spillage but it was cleaned straight away.

Ther is no sign of Green Peace.
