Slavutych town in Chernobyl's shadow

On the "Bridge of Death" just outside Pripyat, a ghost town left deserted by the nuclear disaster in the Chernobyl power station nearby. Town residents stood on the bridge to watch the nuclear meltdown and received fatal doses of radiation.

30 years on, the city is still heavily contaminated, unfit for human life.

The Chernobyl nuclear disaster happened on 26 April 1986.
