Up Helly Aa fire festival lights up Shetland
Shetland's spectacular annual Up Helly Aa fire festival has been held.
Up Helly Aa is an event which celebrates Shetland's Viking heritage, and culminated with the dramatic burning of a replica Viking galley.
It features a band of latter-day Viking warriors known as the Jarl Squad, and attracts visitors from across the world.
Northern Constabulary had to bring in extensive road closures during Tuesday for the event.
