Building works re-start in Paris’ fire-ravaged Notre Dame

PARIS (AP) — Works have re-started in Paris’ fire-ravaged Notre Dame cathedral after a hiatus linked to the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday morning operations recommenced to dismantle scaffolding that was already in place before the April 2019 fire amid previous restoration efforts on the old structures. This current phase of works has been deemed highly dangerous because the scaffolding weighs over 200 tons, and is thought to have melted together in areas because of the heat of the blaze.
