China blocks BBC's Queen coverage

BBC World News coverage broadcast in China went black during a report about the Queen's comments on Chinese officials.

Presenter Tim Willcox can be seen on the TV set in Beijing reading the headlines at the start of the news bulletin.

As he starts to say "Sino-British relations" the image starts to pixelate and then goes to black.

Eleven seconds later, once the topic has turned to the Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, the image returns to normal.
