Thousands of people across the world believe they will be swept up to heaven at around 6pm today.

True believers across the globe are shutting themselves indoors to pray in preparation for the world's end, the accuracy behind the apocalyptic prophesy of 89-year-old Harold Camping will become very clear before the day is out.

"Some believers are shutting themselves inside to pray as they wait for the world's end."
