Locals relieved at raising of the Costa Concordia

The infamous shipwreck of the Costa Concordia was finally set upright this week. However the massive cruise liner still needs to be floated and towed away from the Italian island of Giglio before it's turned to scrap.

In the meantime, residents on the tiny island still have to live with the eyesore on their coast and the constant reminder that 32 people died when the ship capsized in January of last year.
