Oil spill: BP admits its latest attempt to stem the leak has failed


BP has admitted that its latest effort to stem the 40-day flow of oil into the
Gulf has failed.

Oil spill: BP admits its latest attempt to stem the leak is failing


Speaking at a news conference at Fourchon Beach in Louisiana, Doug Suttles,
BP's chief operating officer, said that attempts to plug the oil leak with a
mixture of mud and debris had done nothing to stem the flow. The attempt was
later abandoned.


"I don't think the amount of oil coming out has changed," said Mr
Suttles. "Just by watching it, we don't believe it's changed."


He added: “After three full days, we have not been able to stop the flow. We
don’t believe we’ll achieve success so we’re moving on. We have the decision
to move to the next option.”


Meanwhile, a bad storm hit the area, raising fears that more oil could be
blown ashore.


The company last night deployed an underwater robot with a saw in an attempt
to slice off the leaking pipe and place a cap and seal over the opening – an
extremely complicated manoeuvre.
