"BP Troubles Deepen With Buncefield Verdict"

"Beleaguered BP will find its reputation further tarnished tomorrow when a British criminal court passes sentence on a company it half owns over safety breaches connected with the worst explosion and fire since the second world war.

The British Pipeline Agency (BPA), controlled 50/50 by BP and Shell, is to be fined for breaking health and safety as well as environmental regulations at its base next to the Buncefield oil storage depot near Hemel Hempstead."

Terry Macalister reports for the UK Guardian July 15, 2010.
