PARIS: French workers on Monday resumed efforts to secure the cathedral of Notre-Dame following the devastating April fire, after a three-week pause due to the risk of lead contamination.

Efforts to remove lead from the area around Notre-Dame got underway last week after alarm grew over the presence of the toxic metal. Residents have accused the Paris authorities of underplaying the risk from the lead although the culture ministry insists safety is the top priority.But prefect Michel Cadot, the government's top official for the Paris region, approved the resumption of the works after visiting the site.
