Notre Dame Cathedral devastated by fire

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 16 April 2019

A fire is ripping through the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Thick smoke has been billowing into the skies of the French capital for more than two hours. The spire at the rear of the cathedral has collapsed and crowds have been watching on in horror. There have been no reports of injuries, and the cause of the fire is not clear. For the latest our correspondent Peter Allen is at the scene. He talks to Gyles Beckford.
