Locals continue to feel effects of BP spill

Despite BP paying billions in compensation to people affected by the spill, many in Louisiana have not fully recovered.

    Four years after a massive oil spill devastated the coast of the US state of Louisiana, residents and businesses in the area still feel its effects.

    BP, the company found responsible for the disaster, paid billions in damages to those affected but despite the payout some businesses have not recovered to the level they were before the spill.

    Business owners are divided on whether the company has done enough to repair the damage.
