The city centre was busy on New Year’s Eve as hundreds of revellers saw out 2018 with a party. The feel-good factor saw one couple see in the new year with a kiss as others brought out the fizz to toast the occasion. The celebrations included the letting off of fireworks near McDonald’s with the night sky turned green. Police had issued a dispersal order earlier in the day to help prevent any anti-social behaviour, but there were no signs of trouble as 2019 was welcomed in.
