Notre-Dame

Notre-Dame - The area around Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris has been sealed off. Early this morning workers prepared to apply a special gel to absorb lead particles that seeped into the soil in the wake of the April 15 blaze. Renovation work at the cathedral was halted last month over fears that workers could be exposed to lead poisoning after testing revealed dangerously high levels of contamination at the site and surrounding areas.
