A British national said he's stuck in a UN safe house in Afghanistan but feels abandoned as the country is taken over by the Taliban.

Miles Routledge, twenty-one, thought it would be safe to visit because the country would not fall for several months until of course, it was swarmed a little earlier than expected.

Yesterday, Taliban troops closed in on the capital, seizing power and causing President Ashraf Ghani to flee the country.

Miles, a student at Loughborough University, said he had called the British embassy for help but feels ignored.

"I was fully prepared for death, I accepted it. This trip has been a test of God. I'm very religious so I believe I'll be looked after," he said, relying on the power of God to save him.

"Before I left I wrote a letter to my friends saying that if I died, not to feel guilty, that I would die happy and religious and proud."

Miles has the ambition to visit some of the world's most dangerous places, with Afghanistan being 1 of many on his bucket list...

Insurgents near Kabul international Airport stopped Miles and asked him where the twenty-one-year-old was from.

"Wales," he told them, not wanting to say the UK. He claims that they let him go because they didn't know where it was.

He has also given himself the name "Lord Miles Routledge" as "the Taliban may see that as reason enough to keep me alive, thinking it may hold some negotiating power as they'll think I'm important."

Just before the Taliban swarmed in, he shared pictures of himself in a local market with guns at what appears to be a security checkpoint.

Miles spent the summer working as an intern for a wealth management firm, saying: "I like risk; I'm a banker, so it makes sense. I hate lying around on a beach so I wanted to do something a little bit different.

"After graduating I'll have a full-time job and maybe a family so won't have the opportunity to do things like this again. I thought [Afghanistan] looked quite nice, the food seemed amazing and it was dirt cheap."

And Miles has even documented his visit on the message board site 4chan and live streaming platform Twitch...

"Now I'm in a safe place," he says on the live stream.

He then said that he didn't tell his new girlfriend that a war has started in the country, but seemed very calm in his disclosure of the information, even laughing when he talked of "running" down the street as the Taliban closed in...

Posting to Facebook, Miles said: "I've heard about some kind people gathering money for my trip but please put it to better use and donate to some charities in the area. A few $ or £ will make all the difference for a family."

He admitted that, while he feels comfortable, the "average" Afghani is fearing for their lives, pleading with people to help by donating money to small charities.
