The Manchester Evening News has published an incredible slideshow of photos documenting what hell might look like.

According to the introduction:

ā€œRevellers descended on the city centre and an M.E.N photographer captured the cuddles and kisses as well as the aftermath with people lying in the road, vomiting and urinating in the street as well as a few revellers being helped by police.ā€

Photos include a woman shrieking desperately into the void as she is flanked by police officers (caption: ā€œPolice assist woman from a cabā€), a drunk young zombie dying slowly (caption: ā€œPolice hold on to a man near the Printworksā€), a close-up of something I will never un-see (caption: ā€œA man vomits in the streetā€), and...this (caption: ā€œPolice hold on to a man as another lies in the road.ā€)

Oh my god.
