Paris’s famous Moulin Rouge lost its sails

# The windmill on top of the world-famous Moulin Rouge cabaret club in Paris has lost its sails. The blades fell onto the street below in the early hours of this morning. The cause of the collapse isn’t clear. Police say there were no injuries. The first three letters of the “Moulin Rouge” sign have also fallen off. Moulin Rouge, with its distinctive red windmill blades, has been a fixture of Paris’s nightlife for more than 100 years, and became famous for its can-can dance and topless dancers.
