Big Ben is back!… well, almost.
But no longer. From 3pm today, Big Ben and the quarter bells will be striking intermittently, before both strike alongside each other at the usual rate of the clock. The tests will continue until 8am on Wednesday – so good luck getting any sleep if you are a local.
From 3pm on Wednesday, the bells will chime again at the usual strike rate.
