GRANDE ISLE Louisiana (Reuters) - President Barack Obama was expected to focus on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster in talks on Saturday with Britain's new leader, even as the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season threatened to disrupt containment and cleanup efforts.

Tropical Storm Alex is currently tracking too far west to threaten oil siphoning operations at BP Plc.'s blown-out Macondo well off the Louisiana coast, the top U.S. oil spill official said on Saturday.
