Big Ben is known for its accuracy but it stopped for ninety minutes on what date? What time did it stop and what time did it start again?

"On Friday, 27 May 2005 the clock stopped ticking for 90 minutes from 10.07pm, possibly due to hot weather (temperatures in London had reached an unseasonal 31.8°C/90°F). It resumed keeping time, but stalled again at 10.20 p.m. and remained still for about 90 minutes before starting up again. " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Ben
