The clock in Southampton's landmark clock tower will be switched off today as part of the work for the SeaCity Museum.

Visitors will get the opportunity to climb to the top of the clock tower as part of the development. This will be launched later in the year.

To make it safe, the clock mechanism housing needs to be painted with fire-resistant paint. The clock will be switched off from March 19 to March 22 while this is done.
