An embarrassed BBC 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 today 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.

He starts the report – filmed at some point in the last 12 months in the Middle East – by saying: ‘Burning behind me is eight and a half tonnes of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics.’
The reporter attempts to start his next line but lets out a tiny giggle, setting the cameraman off and both burst out laughing.

He then urges the cameraman to ‘come on’ and try another take, but this time he struggles to get out the whole sentence, managing just ‘burning behind me’.
And the longer they stand there the harder it becomes as they both fall into fits of a laughter.
‘Ssh, quick, we just need one more,’ he tells the cameraman but this time his mouth just turns downwards and he can’t even get the word out.
