The Gulf of Mexico oil spill continues to plague BP more than two years after the disaster as the energy giant has revealed another 847 million US dollar (£538 million) hit to cover rising legal costs.

The additional charge for the second quarter brings the total bill for the fatal Deepwater Horizon incident to 38 billion US dollars (£24.1 billion), BP said.
