Listen: Great British hoarders refuse to delete pandemic photos

Older people are often accused of hoarding but it’s 18–24-year-olds who are the biggest culprits – storing a whopping 10 billion photos between them on smartphone devices.

Over a third claim, they don’t delete their images due to worries about forgetting memories and events.

The research by FUJIFILM also shows that 37% of those youngsters surveyed said they’ve been more conscious about preserving their memories since the arrival of the pandemic.

This has led to, on average, 3,000 and 5,000 images in their camera rolls.

Aston spoke to psychologist Daria Kuss.
