Greenpeace has launched legal action to try to halt deepwater oil drilling off the UK.

The environmental group's lawyers are to seek court orders banning new licences until the causes of the Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf of Mexico have been established. Last month Greenpeace activists, left, blockaded a Chevron deepwater drilling site in the North Sea.
