Inside Chernobyl's no-go zone: Haunting photos from town abandoned after radiation disaster 30 years ago reveal desolate hospitals, rotting homes and discarded possessions

  • The town of Pripyat, in Ukraine, sprang up just three kilometres from the ill-fated Chernobyl power plant
  • But on April 26 1986, one of the reactors deep within the plant exploded, causing the world's worst nuclear disaster
  • Austrian photographer Roland Verant, 35, has ventured into the no-go zone to witness the town as it appears now
  • Unmade beds, abandoned meals and empty swimming pools covered in dust offer glimpses into the lives left behind
