Inside Britain's first ever 'Flat Earth convention'
Hundreds of conspiracy theorists who are convinced the Earth is flat gathered at a conference in Britain at the weekend.
The UK’s first Flat Earth Convention took place over three days at a hotel in Birmingham and saw nine speakers take the stage to discuss the shape of our planet.
Among the more than 200 believers who attended were IT consultants and an NHS manager as well as off-grid ‘environmentalists’.
One speaker at the event, which charged £107 ($147) for a three-day ticket, even claimed that ‘gravity doesn’t exist’.

Dave Murphy, a former graphic designer who now lives ‘off-grid’, also spoke at the convention.
