The head of oil giant BP has resigned as chief executive amid a review of his personal relationships with colleagues.
In a shock late evening announcement, the firm said Bernard Looney, who had led the company since 2020, was stepping down with immediate effect.
BP said it had recently started an investigation into alleged relationships Mr Looney had with colleagues, the second in two years.
Slightly odd, societally. Exactly as the modal method of meeting a mate becomes work, not family, work starts to insist upon no mate meeting at work.
