It has been one year since the Costa Concordia cruise liner ran aground off the coast of Italy.

Italians held memorial services on Sunday for the 32 people killed in the accident off the island of Giglio.

The Italian coastguard has also released new video of the first rescue efforts.

Italian prosecutors have also recently concluded an investigation against the captain, who has been accused of manslaughter.
