Thousands of revellers have taken to the streets across the UK to herald the new year.

Hundreds of thousands gathered in London to watch the 11-minute fireworks display under the London Eye, triggered by Big Ben's chimes.

People attended events across Scotland, including some 80,000 in Edinburgh for the Hogmanay street party celebrations.
