BP corporate video shows company's view of how oil spill happened

BP has produced a corporate video which shows the company's view of events leading up to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

According to the company, a "sequence of failures involving a number of different parties" was to blame for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

An investigation carried out by BP said that it was responsible in part for the disaster, but it also blamed other companies working on the well.

BP faces billions of dollars-worth of legal claims for compensation over the spill, the worst in recent US history.
