As fire tore through Paris' iconic Notre-Dame cathedral, flames spread until they completely engulfed the roof.

Then, slowly, the building's iconic spire toppled and collapsed.

The central lead-clad wooden spire, which rose 93 metres (300 feet) above the cathedral roof and weighed 250 tonnes, was in need of costly restoration because the lead, meant to protect the spire from the elements, was wearing thin.

It now needs to be rebuilt completely after collapsing during the fire.
