A man from Taunton will be working round the clock to help repair Big Ben which now faces four years of vital repairs.
Ian Westworth will help to rebuild the five-ton mechanism inside the Westminster clock tower, which fell silent after chiming at lunchtime yesterday after 157 years.
A Victorian mechanism triggers the iconic bongs - it'll now be painstakingly dismantled for renovation.
Time won't stop though, a temporary electric motor will keep the clock going That has been the case for many for more than 150 years, even the Second World War didn't stop the chimes.
They will however be back for Remembrance Day and New Years' Eve.
