Notre-Dame fire: French president says cathedral will be rebuilt

A huge fire has destroyed large parts of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame, although a Paris fire chief said the main structure has been saved.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced a national subscription would be launched to raise money for the cathedral to be rebuilt.

He described Notre-Dame as a place where French people "lived all our great moments" and "the epicentre of our lives".
