Paris’ Charles De Gaulle airport has been evacuated after cracking noises were heard in the roof – a day after part of the futuristic-looking terminal collapsed, killing four people.

The noises were heard on either side of the 30-metre section of Terminal 2E which gave way on Sunday morning.

Of note is the idea that this facility was about to be turned over to a private interest. Consider what would have happened had the collapse occurred within a week after the hand-over, as opposed to before the handover.
