BP sees biggest profit in 14 years

BP has reported its biggest quarterly profit for 14 years after oil and gas prices soared.
 
The energy giant saw underlying profits hit 8 point 45 billion dollars between April and June - more than triple the amount it made in the same period last year.
 
It comes as typical UK household energy bills have been forecast to hit more than 3 thousand 600 pounds a year this winter.
 
The bumper profits have prompted calls for the UK government to tax firms further to help families with rising bills.
 
BP's profits were the second highest for the second quarter in the firm's history and follow record profits from rival Shell and huge earnings from British Gas owner Centrica last week.
