These astonishing pictures reveal the underground metropolis where hundreds of Brits lived to avoid Nazi bombing during World War Two.

Many lived in the cave network for months on end without seeing the light of day.

Hundreds of people in Kent chose to adopt a completely subterranean life after 500 bombs fell in just five minutes on August 24, 1940.

Some 300 families took to living in the tunnels on a permanent basis, KentLive reports.

Life underground became so normal for the people of Ramsgate that street signs, canteens, shops and other services were set up.

There were concerts within the tunnels, numerous latrines and even a hospital in this wartime hub of human activity.
