French officials have warned the Notre-Dame cathedral is still at risk of collapse.

French construction workers wearing protective masks returned to the site of stricken Notre-Dame cathedral on Monday after a three-week pause due to the risk of lead contamination.

Efforts to remove lead from the area around Notre-Dame began last week after alarm grew over the presence of the toxic metal. But prefect Michel Cadot, the government's top official for the Paris region, approved the resumption of the works after visiting the site. President Emmanuel Macron has set an ambitious target of five years for the restoration to be finished. But the ministry said the work would not even begin until next year.
