URBAN explorers who lifted up a drain cover were astonished to find an entire hidden underground city below the streets of Manchester. A group of friends filmed their nocturnal adventures as they lifted a heavy metal cover and descended from the abandoned street and into a parallel universe. One of the explorers films the friends wandering through a rabbit warren of damp tunnels and rooms, passing windows riddled with bullets. You can hear them crying "What the f***!" as the sheer scale of the network becomes apparent. The camera reveals a beautiful arch with the words: "Medical Post" and "Victoria Arches" stamped overhead. In awed tones one asks: "Have we actually just walked into a city under Manchester?" as they pass from one room to another. They then discover a vast bathroom with dozens of urinals and toilets - which are astonishingly intact. The Victoria Arches were said to be used for businesses in the 1800s and later as an air raid shelter during the Second World War.

The underground city of Aydintepe is attracting throngs of visitors to Turkey's least populated region. Nearly two decades ago, a chance find during construction work unveiled an entire city just below the surface of Bayburt. Archaeologists have estimated that the city was probably built in the late Byzantine period, 600-800 years ago. The site largely consists of small galleries, which are rooms carved into the main foundation rock without using any independent building material.
