New Zealand celebrates start of 2018 with spectacular | New Year's Eve fireworks display in Auckland

New Year's Eve celebrations have begun to kick off around the world, with Samoa the first country to welcome in 2018. The tiny pacific island saw in the new year at 10am GMT, with New Zealand following an hour later.



New Zealanders have welcomed in 2018 with an amazing firework display from Auckland's Sky Tower. As one of the first countries to welcome the new year, thousands of cheering revellers rang in the New Year at 11am UK time today as multi-coloured fireworks




exploded across the city skyline at midnight. Sky City - a casino and event centre in Auckland - was again the epicentre of the country's celebrations with a dramatic fireworks display. A giant digital clock on the tower was counting down to the party before the skyline exploded into a amazing flash of colour. Samoa was the first country in the world to welcome in 2018 an hour earlier.



In Australia, 2018 will arrive at 1pm GMT with as many as one million people expected to watch Sydney harbour's world famous fireworks. Rail strikes and Storm Dylan were expected to disrupt New Year's Eve travel in the UK, with gusts of up to 80mph forecast in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
