“I don’t watch TV or the news a lot, but when I did catch a little glimpse of it, it was always about the academics and the historians. And being a construction worker, nobody ever talks about the guy that’s crawling in the ash, you know, the asbestos ash” Springfield photographer, Steven Spencer said.

Fused scaffolding at Notre Dame

Over 550 tons of fused and melted scaffold is currently hanging in the balance over the Paris monument’s roof that was destroyed in a huge fire six months ago. The scaffold needs to be dismantled without pieces falling into the building, says Christophe-Charles Rousselot, the head of the Notre Dame Foundation.

Monsignor Patrick Chauvet, the top administrative cleric of Notre-Dame, said: “We’re still in the first phase, the phase of securing [the monument’s structure] which is lasting longer than initially planned.”

“Then there will be the second phase, dedicated to assessing the situation, we will work out how much the restoration will cost. The third phase, which will start in 2021, will be the restoration phase itself,” Mr Chauvet said.
