  • Description

    HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE GATHERED AT MEETING PLACES THROUGHOUT LONDON TONIGHT (SATURDAY) TO SEE THE OLD YEAR OUT AND THE NEW YEAR IN. AMONG THE MOST POPULAR PLACES WERE PICCADILY CIRCUS, WHERE ONE MAN PRODUCED A BELL TO "RING IN" THE NEW YEAR, AND TRAFALGAR SQUARE, WHERE MANY YOUNG PEOPLE SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY TO INDULGE IN THE SPORT OF LEAPING FULLY-CLAD INTO THE FOUNTAINS IN SPITE OF THE CHILLY WEATHER.

    NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTIES LASTED A LITTLE LONGER TONIGHT AS TOMORROW IS A PUBLIC HOLIDAY - SUNDAY - AND REVELLERS WILL BE ABLE TO SLEEP IN AN NURSE THEIR "HANG-OVERS" FROM TOO MUCH DRINKING, RATHER THAN HAVE TO FACE THE PROSPECT OF GOING TO WORK. AMONG THOSE CELEBRATING NEW YEAR'S EVE, 1967, IN LONDON ARE MANY THOUSANDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, MOST OF THEM FROM COMMONWEALTH COUNTRIES.
