Three hives of over 180,000 bees living on Notre Dame's roof miraculously survived the devastating fire which engulfed the cathedral earlier this week. The first floor roof over the sacristy, just beneath the rose window, has been home to the bees since 2013. Aerial pictures taken by a drone confirmed the hives were not burnt. "Thank goodness the flames didn't touch them," said beekeeper Nicolas Geant. "It's a miracle."
