Just over 6 hours ago the new bells of Notre Dame Cathedral rang out exactly as they would have done 200 years ago.
The nine new bells chime with the original bell bourdon Emmanuel at their inaugural ring in Paris at 5.00pm to a crowd of eager onlookers. Large screens situated outside the cathedral allowed people to see the great bells in action.
