The Palace of Versailles was evacuated this morning following a bomb threat.

The popular tourist attraction, just outside Paris, carried out the evacuation at 10.30am this morning.

Palace authorities took to X, formerly Twitter, announcing: 'We are evacuating visitors from the monument and we will reopen as soon as the checks have been carried out,' wrote the Palace of Versailles on X (former Twitter).

At 1.30pm, they posted that "checks are done" and visitors would be able to re-enter the palace "soon".

It is not the first time the historic building has been targeted with a bomb threat.

On eight days in October, the building was evacuated seven times after bomb threats which turned out to be false.
