Twenty-one-year-old Banbury Guardian reader Sam Smith from Hook Norton had a lovely time watching the fireworks display in the capital on New Year’s Eve – and he managed to take some great pictures of it too.

He said: “The evening was spectacular, our family had tickets for the event so we picked a spot on the Embankment right in front of the London Eye. We then had the long wait for midnight to come around, but we were entertained by a DJ.

“The fireworks sparked into life spot on midnight and continued for close to 15 minutes. I have to say, it was the best display of fireworks I’ve seen and would recommend it to anyone to go see it at least once.”
