Expert comment: The fire at Notre-Dame, Paris

Dr Jennifer Alexander, from the Department of the History of Art at the University of Warwick comments on the fire at the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris.

She says:

"French buildings are more vulnerable here than UK ones because they don't usually have a stone tower in the centre that would act as a fire-break, this is what saved York Minster in 1984 when the transept roof caught fire but the tower stopped it spreading further."
