With the news that Big Ben needs a major service there is a chance the bell could fall silent however, William Hill thinks that New Year will be rung in as usual. It is 1/7 for the bell to chime at midnight on new Year’s Eve, 4/1 it does not.
“It is news that will have clock enthusiasts around the world ringing their bells in dismay but the good news is we’ll hear the bongs to chime in New Year’s Day,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
