Stands the church clock at ten to three?

Someone at the BBC has probably had this story in a case marked "In the event of dire August story shortage break glass" but even so, it is fascinating.

There are a large number of public clocks which are only right twice a day.

  1. A nice typo - the original version of the BBC's caption for the Big Ben picture read "assailers will give clock faces their five-yearly clean". They've now changed it to "abseilers".
