New Orleans, La.
BP PLC says cleanup work is ending in Mississippi and two other states affected by the company's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The London-based oil giant said the Coast Guard is concluding "active cleanup operations" in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, but the work continues along 84 miles of Louisiana's shoreline.

The Coast Guard will continue responding to reports of oil that washes up anywhere along the Gulf Coast. BP says it will take responsibility for removing any oil that came from its blown-out Macondo well.

BP says it has spent more than $14 billion on response and cleanup activities, with more than 48,000 people involved in those efforts at the height of the spill's aftermath.
