Police are warning people not to attend New Year celebrations on the River Thames in London without a ticket, as the UK prepares to usher in 2020.
More than 100,000 tickets have been bought for Tuesday night’s sold-out fireworks display.
The Metropolitan Police urged those without tickets to watch from home or attend other events in the city.
Firework shows are also to be held in cities including Manchester, Cardiff, Newcastle, Inverness and Nottingham.
And in Edinburgh, the streets of Edinburgh are filling up as an estimated 100,000 Hogmanay revellers prepare to welcome in the start of a new decade.
Celebrations began on Monday evening with thousands taking part in a pre-Hogmanay torchlight procession.
In a statement to those visiting London for the celebrations, the Met said it wanted “everyone who comes to London for New Year’s Eve to have a good time”.
However, referencing the fireworks on the Thames, the force added: “If visitors do not have a ticket, entry will not be permitted to the event, so the advice from the Met is to watch the fireworks from the comfort of your home.”
