    I'm sure I saw him down the local Spoons earlier, was complaining about noise pollution or something.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    This is really awful.

    Did a St Paul's to Notre Dame cycle back in 2011, then visited the cathedral proper a couple of years' back. Beautiful stained glass (my personal arty thing) which it's hard to imagine surviving this inferno. Al lot of art and history sadly no more.

    @darmstadt

    Please just go away you disgusting individual, you are simply the mirror image of the very people you so complain about. Go and sit somewhere in a dark room and contemplate on why you so very much need a something wholesome to fill that void within your empty soul.

    Surely the (Catholic?) Church had it insured?

    Doesn't help with the loss of art, but the question must be asked, easy with hind sight I know, but if the building was undergoing restoration why weren't the more priceless, and moveable, works of art stored. Fires, in building of this type are more likely when under going restoration, e.g. Windsor Castle. Lessons not learnt.
    Did no one do the risk assessment. Builders & decorators possibly using flammable materials whilst simultaneously having a quick drag on a ciggy working high up in a building who's roof is largely made of wood. What could Possibly go wrong!
