Oil giant CEO accused of stonewalling and ignoring warnings over drilling risks.

The head of BP, Tony Hayward, has faced a barrage of tough questions from members of the US congress over his company’s handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Politicians accused the energy giant of cutting corners and ignoring warnings, paving the way for the worst oil spill in US history.
