Millions of people around the world have celebrated the start of the new year with a series of spectacular fireworks displays.
Huge crowds braved arctic conditions to usher in 2018 in New York while revellers in Rio de Janeiro partied on the beach for the countdown to midnight.
In London, more than 100,000 ticket-holders gazed up at stunning fireworks from the banks of the River Thames, before dancing to ‘Auld Lang Syne.’
Keeping with tradition, Big Ben in the Houses of Parliament rang in Britain’s new year. Although the clock tower is undergoing renovations, the chimes were turned back on especially for the celebrations.
Greece was one of the first nations in Europe to welcome the new year, with the bells for 2018 ringing at 22:00 GMT.
