For the first time, key vantage points could only be accessed with pre-bought tickets, this led to some criticism as touts sold on the ￡10 tickets for as much as ￡200.
Remember, only officially printed tickets with a hologram will be accepted. Tickets printed at home will not permit entry

Things didn't go quite to plan in Manchester.
After running through the countdown, the crowd were left waiting. According to the Manchester Evening News a tram driver had pulled into the 'fall out' zone where debris from the fireworks could fall. Until the tram moved it wasn't safe to start the display.
After four excruciatingly long minutes, the fireworks eventually got underway.
