New year celebrations around the world as UK rings in 2023? Cities across the globe are welcoming 2023 with large crowds gathering for fireworks and light displays. In the London, Big Ben fired the starting gun for a spectacular display that included a tribute to the late Queen.
In Edinburgh, huge crowds filled the streets for the city's world famous Hogmanay party - back for the first time in three years.

Revellers in China made the most of recently-lifted Covid restrictions and were able to gather in large crowds.
