I have accidentally blocked audio and video play on the BBC website. How can I unblock it?

Posted

Nowadays, a news video palyed often ushers in a whole string of other undesired videos. When my cursor hovered over that video window, aBlock sign appear on the top right-hand corner. I clicked on it, thinking that it would block the sream of videos. Instead, that had stopped ALL video AND audio play I can get from the BBC website. How can I unblock this?
