Stained-glass windows of Paris's Sainte-Chapelle restored

One of the wonders of medieval Europe is officially back on display in the centre of Paris.

The stained glass windows of the Sainte-Chapelle have been painstakingly taken down and cleaned to remove centuries of dirt.

The work has been done to mark 800 years since the birth of King Louis IX. He commissioned the building of the chapel in the middle of the 13th Century to house a religious relic.
