Oil spill forces drilling rethink

Florida residents rethink support for off shore drilling in wake of Gulf disaster.

    The massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has caused widespread economic damage in several US states, including Florida which has reported a serious dip in its crucial tourist industry.

    As oil tarballs wash up on the shores of some Florida beaches, the disaster has caused many people who once favoured off shore oil drilling to have a change of heart.
