  • Description

    Thousands of revellers gathered in London's Trafalgar Square to await the New Year as it chimed from the tower of Big Ben above the Houses of Parliament. Although the weather was close to freezing - many of the celebrants made the traditional jump into the fountains under the vigilant eye of Lord Nelson.

    Dancing and singing, they saw the New year in - paying no attention to damaged clothes or the possibility of bad colds as they jumped into the icy water.

    The less adventurous joined in the choruses and blew whistles as they caroused around the fountains into the early hours of the morning.
