Security has been stepped up around BP chief executive Tony Hayward's family after hate mail was sent to their Kent home.
Mr Hayward's wife Maureen has suffered threats from campaigners over the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Kent police sources said there was an “ongoing operation” to protect Mr and Mrs Hayward and their two children.
Mrs Hayward said letters sent to their home near Sevenoaks had made them feel “uncomfortable”. She told the Daily Telegraph: “Members of my family have had nasty phone calls and we have also had mail from groups. Tony is obviously away and we are miles away from him so it's upsetting.”
Mr Hayward said of his family: “I am very protective of my time with them.” A 12ft hedge surrounds the family home, which is only accessible by a private road. A BP insider said police were posted outside BP's St James's Square office on Friday.
His wife and kids did nothing wrong.
