Chaos in Birmingham as thousands gather to see YouTuber James Charles

Huge queues formed at the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham in the UK on Saturday as around 8,000 fans waited to catch a glimpse of YouTuber James Charles.

"It brought the Bullring to a standstill and extra police had to be brought in," said the filmer of this video.

The appearance of the beauty guru is reported to have brought chaos to the roads of Birmingham city centre too with motorists stuck in gridlocked traffic from 15:00 until 19:30 local time.

The BBC reported that drivers trying to leave car parks found they were stuck and some opted to abandon their vehicles overnight.
