Glasgow Hogmanay event cancelled

Glasgow's Hogmanay celebrations in the city's George Square and Stirling's New Year event have been cancelled.
Glasgow organisers said they had been monitoring wind speeds in the square and gusts were reaching up to 70mph.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said barriers were being blown over and this meant they could not ensure public safety.

It is the first time Glasgow has cancelled its outdoor New Year party, which was to due to include fireworks.

About 25,000 revellers were expected to see in the New Year at the event, which was to feature The Fratellis, Sandi Thom and The View.

However, party-goers have been urged to stay away.
