HOUSTON/LONDON (Reuters) - The approach of a major storm on Friday forced BP Plc to halt efforts to permanently plug a gushing oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, sending ships and workers retreating to safety.

Two rigs stopped drilling the relief wells intended to halt the leak for good and prepared to move out of the storm's path. Tropical Storm Bonnie weakened to a tropical depression after moving across Florida on Friday.
