London's 'Big Ben': Elizabeth Clock Tower cleaned

Cleaners have been working on the clock face on the Elizabeth Tower - which was renamed in 2012 to celebrate Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Many people know the landmark as Big Ben - the nickname of the bell in the tower.

The clock hands were frozen at 12:00 as four cleaners scaled the clock face.
