Civil engineers have reported that London's infamous tower of Big Ben is now leaning so much that its tilt can be seen with the naked eye.

Surveyors found that the clock tower's lean is getting worse every year, and that the top of it is now almost 1 and 1/2 feet off the perpendicular. If this was to go on uncorrected, experts say the tower would eventually topple. Best crack on with the some scaffolding, then. More info here.
