BBC News Reporter Quentin Sommerville loses the thread when reporting in front of a drug bonfire in the Middle East. Funny!
He has braved gunfire to report from some of the world’s most treacherous regions. But now the BBC’s Quentin Sommerville has revealed how he fell victim to an unexpected hazard: a pile of burning narcotics.
In a video entitled “Don’t Inhale”, the BBC’s Middle East Correspondent appears to be getting high on the burning drugs as he tries and repeatedly fails to deliver his lines to camera before collapsing into laughter.
“Burning behind me is eight-and-a-half tonnes of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics,” Mr Sommervillle begins, before emitting a high-pitched giggle.
“Burning behind me…” he begins a second clip before again collapsing into laughter – or “corpsing”, as it is known by broadcasters.
In a third clip he is seen imploring his cameraman “Quick, quick! We just need one more” but appears incapable of saying anything further with both men descending into giggles.
