  • Description

    WITH LONDON STILL
    SHIVERING AND MORE SNOW FALLING, ONLY A FEW THOUSAND PEOPLE TURNED OUT IN THE
    STREETS OF LONDON LAST NIGHT (MONDAY) TO WELCOME IN THE NEW YEAR.

    THERE WERE FEWER REVELLERS THAN USUAL - BUT THAT WAS ONLY TO BE EXPECTED.

    BLIZZARDS, ICE, SNOW AND SLUSH WERE REPORTED FROM CENTRES THROUGHOUT THE LONDON
    AREA AND SOUTH OF ENGLAND AS MIDNIGHT STRUCK.

    INSTEAD OF THE USUAL DENSE CROWD WHICH BLOCKS ALL THE TRAFFIC IN PICCADILLY
    CIRCUS, ABOUT FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE TURNED OUT FOR THIS YEAR'S REVELS. ALTHOUGH
    IT WAS INTENSELY COLD AND SNOWING FREELY, THE PEOPLE SANG, DANCED, EMBRACED AND
    KISSED TO CELEBRATE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR. WHEREVER GROUPS OF PEOPLE WERE
    GATHERED TOGETHER, THEY LINKED ARMS AND JOINED IN SINGING "AULD LANG SYNE", THE
    TRADITIONAL SCOTTISH AIR WHICH IS SUNG ON SUCH OCCASIONS.
