A giant concrete-and-steel funnel has been placed over a blown-out oil well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico in a bid to contain oil leaking from it.

The oil firm, BP, said it might take up to 12 hours for the containment device to settle in place, but that everything appeared to be going as planned.

It is hoped it will be able to collect as much as 85% of the oil and begin funnelling it to ships above by Monday.



This is good news.
