UK celebrates New Year with thousands of fireworks

Thousands of revellers welcomed in the new decade in central London and Edinburgh with 12,000 fireworks.

London’s display was set to a soundtrack featuring local artists like Stormzy, Wiley and Bastille.

Football also featured dominantly in the show – with nostalgic songs such as Football’s Coming Home played to celebrate London’s role in hosting several key games during the Euro 2020 tournament.
