Veteran Reporter Stands a Little Too Close to 8 Tons of Burning Narcotics — Watch the Video That 'Was Never Broadcast\

"...it hasn’t been seen before and was never broadcast."

BBC Middle East correspondent Quentin Somerville was caught on video seemingly getting high on accident after standing a little too close to more than 8 tons of burning narcotics in Afghanistan.

“Burning behind me is eight-and-a-half tonnes of heroin, opium, hashish and other narcotics,” Somerville reported before suddenly laughing uncontrollably.

Watch the video via the Telegraph:

Somerville later posted the blooper video on Twitter, but had to delete it due to copyright issues. “Dear tweeps, it’s been a year of bullets & bloodshed,” he wrote on Twitter.

The BBC confirmed in a statement that the video was “filmed four years ago.”

“It was filmed four years ago – it hasn’t been seen before and was never broadcast,” the statement added.
