Stand aside Piza, London's coming through!

Okay, maybe not as dramatic as the title sounds but oh well.

It appears as though Big Ben, the iconic tower/bell in London is slowly but surely sinking into the ground one side faster than the other. Not that any future tourists should worry as it is expected to take over 4,000 years to reach the same standard as The Leaning Tower Of Piza.

However, at its current speed, it would take some 4,000 years to reach the angle of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and even longer to hit tipping-point.

But it is definitely visible to the naked eye as spotted by some tourists

"You can see it if you stand on Parliament Square and look east, towards the river. I have heard tourists there taking photographs saying 'I don't think it is quite vertical' - and they are quite right.

A little bonus to cheer us all up:

In the unlikely event that the tower falls, it will land on MPs' offices over the road in Portcullis House.
