BP oil spill: 'Oil-smeared' protester at annual meeting

An anti-BP demonstrator has smeared herself in syrup, in imitation of oil, during protests outside the oil company's general meeting in London.

US shrimp farmer Diane Wilson had previously protested at the US Congressional hearings into the disaster when then-chief of BP Tony Hayward was giving evidence.

BP said the group were not allowed into the London meeting as they were judged to be a threat to other shareholders.
