Oil giant BP is heading to court in the United States for the second phase of a civil trial over the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Eleven workers died when the Deepwater rig exploded in 2010, leading to a massive environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

The court will determine how much BP and its partners will have to pay out in environmental fines.
