The process of removing metal scaffolding that has encased Notre Dame cathedral in Paris for months, having melted and fused there during the fire in April 2019, began on June 8. The scaffolding was on the building due to restoration work that was being done when the fire broke out. The work to remove the scaffolding is expected to take up to four months.

Notre Dame has not reopened to the public. Reconstruction work cannot begin until after the scaffolding has been removed.
