Spectacular intervention by fire fighters on Wednesday at around 6pm to the Great Bell, at the top of the Rue Saint James, at the intersection of the road Victor Hugo.  Fire fighters responded and deployed widely to reach the top of the building, says South West.  Zinc protection on the top of the building at the section of the Great Bell had got loose and threatened to collapse.

Firefighters have used the recognition and intervention group in dangerous environments (Grimp) to help develop this piece weighing at least 5 kg.

Photos were made on time and shared on social networks, illustrating the difficulties to perform the operation.
