ANOTHER body has been found among the wreckage of the Costa Concordia, bringing the death-toll up to 12.

Rescue workers confirm that the remains are that of a woman, but she has not yet been formally identified.

Among the dead following the cruise-liner accident at around 20.30hrs on Friday, January 13 are two French tourists, an 85-year-old Italian man, a 68-year-old Spanish man from Mallorca, and a Peruvian member of the crew.

A further 20 remain on the missing list, including 26-year-old Peruvian bar-maid, Erika Soria.

The Spanish survivors have been taken home, and it is not thought that there were any British nationals on board.

Around 4,000 passengers had sat down to dinner when they felt a violent jolt and the lights went out, say survivors.

The ship had hit a rock on the shores of Giglio island, just off the Tuscan coast.

Since the incident, the captain has been arrested.

A Dutch company is currently handling the clearance of 2,380 tonnes of fuel spread across the water as a result of the collision.
