Meanwhile, Frances Fondation du Patrimoine, a private organisation which works to protect French heritage, said it would be starting an international appeal.

All donations received will be paid in full to the restoration site.

Mr Macron said he would be looking beyond our borders as the fundraising campaign got under way.

In an emotional speech on Monday night, he said: I am solemnly telling you tonight: this cathedral will be rebuilt by all of us together.

Describing Notre Dame as our history and the epicentre of our lives, he added: Its probably part of Frances destiny and it will be our project for the years to come.

Across the pond, the US-based French Heritage Society said it would be establishing a restoration fund, while several appeals have already been set up on crowdfunding sites such as GoFundMe and Just Giving.
