BP boss expected to pay out £6.8b to shareholders

BP's chief executive, Tony Hayward, is today expected to defy calls from U.S. politicians to block over £6.8billion of payouts to shareholders this year.

According to sources he is prepared to risk further fury in America by promising to stick with the disgraced company's payout policy in an effort to placate shareholders.

Such a controversial move comes in spite of demands from American politicians that all dividends be halted until the total cost of the clean-up is known.
