Big Ben’s iconic bongs return after restoration work

After five years of restoration work, the bells of the Elizabeth Tower – including Big Ben – are returning to regular service.

Big Ben will be struck 11 times at 11:00 on Remembrance Sunday to mark the beginning of the two-minute silence.

Clockmakers Ian Westworth and Alex Jeffrey spoke to the BBC about bringing the iconic bells back into service.
