Restoration work unveiled as Big Ben's clock turns 160


The world's most famous clock, known as 'Big Ben' after its bell, turns 160 this year. The monument is currently being renovated, and the first face to get its makeover is unveiled ahead of July 11th, the date in 1859 when the clock in Parliament's Elizabeth Tower first chimed.
