Oil spill 'steadily reaching Florida shoreline'
Oil from the Gulf of Mexico leak is getting "steadily and slowly" closer to the Florida shoreline despite efforts to tackle the spill increasing.
The head of the US government effort says the amount of oil being captured from the leaking well could almost double in the next week.
Coastguard Admiral Thad Allen said BP expected to be able to collect around 28,000 barrels of oil a day.
Andy Gallacher reports from the Gulf coast.
