BP says it hopes to restart the testing process on the cap it put on top of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, now that a leak in the machinery has been fixed.

Testing of the cap's capabilities could begin later today.

The work was interrupted after a leak was discovered late yesterday in a line that can funnel oil up to a ship if necessary.
