Drug fumes make reporter get the giggles

AN EMBARRASSED BBC news reporter struggled to finish his broadcast as he got high after getting too close to a stack of burning drugs.

Quentin Sommerville, the corporation’s Middle East correspondent, posted a link to the video on his YouTube page as a ‘Christmas present’ to his Twitter followers.

The video, which he called ‘Don’t inhale’, shows the reporter stood next to a huge pile of heroin, opium and hashish, but as he tries to begin his report he can’t help but giggle.


The longer the reporter and cameraman stand there the harder it becomes as he struggles to even get his first line out in the final take.
