The world is paying tribute to one of Europe's most recognisable landmarks after flames ripped through Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
The cause of the fire at the 850-year-old building is not yet clear, but officials say it could be linked to renovation works taking place.
It took 15 hours for it to be declared fully extinguished.
Hundreds of millions of euro have been pledged to help re-build the cathedral, with an outpouring of emotion from around the world.
Firefighters worked through the night to save the main structure of the building, however the roof was destroyed and the spire collapsed.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said the country will rebuild the cathedral, and a fund is being launched to help pay for the reconstruction.
As well as the French President, leaders from around the world reacted to the devastating news:
Terrible to see #NotreDame ablaze tonight. Such an iconic cultural landmark. Devastating for the people of Paris who are watching history burning.

"The Notre Dame Cathedral has suffered many instances of catastrophic damage over the centuries, and it is my hope that it will survive this latest terrible catastrophe."

My thoughts are with the people of France tonight and with the emergency services who are fighting the terrible blaze at Notre-Dame cathedral.

So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

Notre Dame is one of the world’s great treasures, and we’re thinking of the people of France in your time of grief. It’s in our nature to mourn when we see history lost – but it’s also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can. pic.twitter.com/SpMEvv1BzB

I’d like to say words of comfort and solidarity with the French nation, also as citizen of Gdańsk, 90% destroyed and burnt, later rebuilt. You will also rebuild your cathedral!
From Strasbourg, French capital of the EU, I call on all 28 States to take part in this task.#NotreDame
