Scenes similar to Chernobyl have been spotted around Birmingham since the Government advised us Brits to stay at home.

For a place with a population of more than two million, it’s a pretty rare to see this city become a complete ghost town. Abandoned by many, other than those who are still required to work outside of home such as shop/retail workers and those working in health and medical care, Birmingham has been looking far from its usual self during lockdown.

Usually packed places such as the Bull Ring, New Street station and Centenary Square have appeared completely deserted, as the city does its bit to keep their fellow Brummies safe and well. Here’s some super eerie photos of a temporarily empty Birmingham city centre.
