Cameraman Danny Cooke, working on a report for CBS News, has shared this amazing montage of footage largely taken with a drone, from the devastated town of Pripyat – the site of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station Disaster.

Cooke managed to capture the radiation riddled ruins of Pripyat in a way like no-one else before him, using his DJI Phantom drone with a GoPro Hero 3+.

“Chernobyl is one of the most interesting and dangerous places I’ve been. The nuclear disaster, which happened in 1986 (the year after I was born), had and effect on so many people, including my family when we lived in Italy. I can’t imagine how terrifying it would have been for the hundreds of thousands of locals who evacuated.” – Danny Cooke.
