Reporter drops F-bomb when interrupted by  Big Ben.
Clock Tower, also known as 'Big Ben,' rises behind the London Eye in London, England.

A British TV reporter has inadvertently sworn when he was interrupted by the chimes of Big Ben.

According to News.com.au, Sky News chief political correspondent Jon Craig lost his composure and dropped the F-word in exasperation during a report on British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Brussels trip to meet with EU leaders.

“Oh f***ing hell,” he groaned, momentarily looking back in annoyance to Big Ben.

Cutting back to the news studio, the newsreader then apologised for the slip.

There was less of a ding dong in later bulletins, which ran a full report by Craig with no distraction from the chimes of the London landmark.
