Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, pledged last night to consider congressional demands for an investigation into allegations that BP lobbied for the release of the man convicted over the Lockerbie bombing as part of an oil-for-terrorist deal.

The White House added to the pressure on the British oil firm today as it gave the green light to renewed attempts to close valves on a new, tighter-fitting cap over BP’s fractured wellhead in the Gulf of Mexico.
