A leaky roof turns into a lucky break for one family from Toulouse


A leaky roof could prove to be a lucky break for one family in France.

Investigating the source of the flood led a family from Toulouse to discover a 400-year-old painting thought to be by the Italian master, Caravaggio, hidden among the rafters.

The painting has been languishing in the attic of the house near Toulouse for around 150 years.

If confirmed as being by the artist, it could be worth up to 120 million euros.
