On Sunday, two environmental activists boarded a BP oil rig in Northern Scotland, calling for the company to stop drilling new oil wells.

BP is trying to extract 30 million barrels of oil from the Vorlich oil field. Protesters now occupy a gantry of the oil rig, hoping to prevent the drill from reaching the field.

BP is working with police and the rig's owner to resolve the incident peacefully.
