Paris attractions close due to flood risk

Two of Paris’s most famous tourist attractions, the Louvre and Musee d’Orsay, have been closed due to flooding in the French capital.

The landmark museums have closed to protect priceless art works from potential flood damage following days of torrential rain.

The River Seine has burst its banks after rising five metres above normal levels. Today it is expected to peak at six metres.

Further heavy rain is forecast in parts of central Europe this weekend.
