Cities appeared to be competing to put on the most memorable display, and in key spots like the Big Apple the shows were nothing short of spectacular.

The UK may have been an hour later than most of the rest of Europe, but the fireworks centred on the London Eye did not disappoint.

Amsterdam joined in as one of the world’s cities to send a virtual postcard on New Years’ Eve, using its iconic canals to best effect.
