Sky News Reports: BP Chairman Says “… embattled chief executive Tony Hayward is to have a changed role in dealing with the oil spill.”
The BP Chairman told Sky News that comments by Mr Hayward have had detrimental effects as the company seeks to control the fallout from the disaster. BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said: “It is clear Tony has made remarks that have upset people.”

“I still strongly believe in BP and that we will come through this,” the Chairman said.
