BP to release internal investigation into oil spill

BP is to release an internal investigation into the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the worst ecological catastrophe in recent US history.

The investigation has taken five months, and is expected to blame BP as well as other companies involved in the drilling operation.

It is more than four months since an explosion on the Deep Water Horizon rig killed eleven people and led to millions of barrels of oil leaking into the Gulf.

Brian Milligan reports.
