Police officials said that the triangular structure above the central rose window is leaning eight inches (20 centimeters) forward toward the street since the fire (pictured right, the windows prior to the blaze). The Culture Ministry’s fire expert, Jose Vaz de Matos, told reporters that part of the structure is to be taken down ‘to limit the movement’ of the stone (pictured left, a graphic showing the damage to the gothic cathedral). De Matos said the main risk to the cathedral is the gables above the rose windows, which provide crucial support to the stained glass masterpieces. He said the structure is particularly exposed to the wind, and the overall structure remains fragile. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said he will open the redesign of the of Notre Dame cathedral’s historic spire to architects. He said: ‘The international competition will allow us to ask the question of whether we should even recreate the spire as it was conceived by Viollet-le-Duc. Or whether, as is often the case during the evolution of heritage, we should endow Notre-Dame with a new spire that reflects the techniques and challenges of our era.’ A day after the bells rang at Westminster Abbey in support of France, cathedral bells rang out across France on Wednesday evening in support of Notre-Dame, at the exact time a devastating blaze (pictured inset left) struck the 850-year-old gothic masterpiece on Monday.
