BP returns to court over Gulf oil spill

Second phase of civil trial over Deepwater Horizon disaster will determine how much company will have to pay out.

    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.
