Thousands of hopeful applicants spend hours queuing for a police job in the hot sun - knowing that fewer than 250 will get the job.  Around 6,500 men and 500 women stand in long lines outside police headquarters in Bogura, Bangladesh, hoping they might make the cut.<br />

Photographer Abdul Momin, 28, flew a drone camera above the crowds before they entered the first stage of the interview process - a medical exam.  Each candidate stands in row for up to seven hours with their papers in hand, with the hope of scoring the £159-a-month (16,899 Bangladeshi taka) position of trainee police constable.
