BP spokesman: Hayward is still 'in charge'

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WLOX) -

NEW ORLEANS, LA (AP) - A BP spokesman is insisting embattled CEO Tony Hayward is still running the company's Gulf oil spill response.

Robert Wine, who is based in London, told The Associated Press on Friday, that Hayward is "still very much in charge in the response of this crisis."

Wine's comments come after BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said that Hayward is on his way out as the company's point man on the crisis.

Svanberg's statement have sowed confusion, with other BP officials saying Hayward remains in charge.
