Skegness welcomed 2018 with a bang – and saw hundreds of ‘happy people’ flocking around the Clock Tower.

Families joined revellers who had kept the tills ringing at the town’s clubs and pubs, staying out late to see in the New Year.

Many party goers were in fancy dress for various events held around town - a tradition which over the years has attracted people from all over the country.

Mayor of Skegness Coun Danny Brookes was among those celebrating.

As crowds gathered around the Clock Tower he said: “This is Skegness. No trouble and lots of happy people.”

As 12am struck, the sky lit up with a spectacular display of fireworks.
