Thousands of revellers have taken to the streets across the UK to herald the new year.

Hundreds of thousands gathered in London to watch the 11-minute fireworks display under the London Eye, triggered by Big Ben's chimes.

People attended events across Scotland, including some 80,000 in Edinburgh for the Hogmanay street party celebrations.

This footage was first broadcast on 31 December 2011/1 January 2012.
