The biggest party in the world is underway with bright fireworks bursting into skies across the globe as midnight strikes and nations hail the start of 2014.
London welcomed 2014 with a mixture of futuristic fireworks and torch-lit tradition. For people in the capital, the New Year offered the unique opportunity to taste the fireworks.
Edible banana confetti and strawberry mist rained from the sky as a fireworks display along the River Thames lights up Big Ben and other landmarks.
London Mayor Boris Johnson said: ‘There is no better way to celebrate the highs of 2013 and the start of an exciting new year than by seeing one of the world’s most dazzling firework displays, now augmented in more ways than one.
