SADLY, Britain’s departure from the EU at 11pm tonight will not be marked by the bongs of Big Ben.
The mighty clock’s chimes were silenced in 2017 to allow restoration work estimated to last four years.
A crowdfunding appeal to restore the bells temporarily raised £272,000 before the project was abandoned and the money donated to Help for Heroes.
However, thanks to TCW and the wonders of YouTube, readers can have your own DIY Big Ben bongs in the comfort of your home. At 20 seconds before 11, follow this link.
