    Ten years since an earthquake hit Christchurch in New Zealand and left 185 people dead, a major rebuild of the city’s cathedral is under way. As part of the project, a drone survey from 2019 has revealed extensive damage to the historic structure, with rubble littered around the building and chairs still strewn across the floor. When the cathedral’s tower fell it opened up the building to the elements, with thousands of pigeons since taking over the space, while water ingress has caused further damage. The cathedral’s rebuild is expected to be completed in 2028
