BP shut down London Headquarter

BP shut down its head office in London on Wednesday, 5 February, after climate change protesters tried to block the entrance, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The demonstration coincided with Chief Executive Bernard Looney's first day in office.

More than 100 Greenpeace activists attempted to put up 500 solar panels in front of BP's headquarters in St James' Square and olled oil barrels in front of the building's main entrance. BP said Mr Looney shared the "deep concerns" of the climate protesters.
