6,500 people buy crumbling castle

Thousands of internet users have joined forces to save Mothe-Chandeniers chateau in France.

By contributing at least €51 (£45; $61) each, they managed to raise €500,000 needed to buy the ruined 13th Century castle.

Each participant is now a co-owner of Mothe-Chandeniers, which the online community plans to restore.
