There is now a legal action over worrying lead levels around Notre Dame Cathedral.

Lawyers for a branch of one of the country’s most powerful unions, which has joined forced with a health association and local residents, have submitted a legal case for “endangering life … by persons unknown”.

The plaintiffs accuse the authorities of “grave negligence”, which they say exposed city dwellers, particularly children and those working to restore the cathedral, to dangerous levels of toxic lead dust.
