The year in pictures
As 2010 draws to a close it's time to look back at the events of the year and pick out a few of the best pictures from the major news events.
We've published a number of galleries so I thought it might be helpful to bring them together in one place.
• The UK year in pictures 2010
• A year of news photographs from around the world 2010 [warning: this gallery contains pictures that some readers may find disturbing]
• A year in arts and entertainment 2010
• The best of your pictures on a theme 2010
Thanks to all the photographers for their hard work and I wish all my readers a Happy New Year. See you in 2011.
