The annual London New Year's fireworks show was held as early as 1 am, and more than 100,000 people gathered in the heart of London, England to enjoy this grand fireworks show to welcome the New Year.
A total of 12,000 fireworks were fired from the "London Eye" and the Thames barge this year. With Big Ben ringing 12 beeps at 0:00 on the 1st, dazzling fireworks illuminate the Thames and the old city of London, and the passionate music sounds at the same time, and the audience cheers.
London Mayor Sadik Khan said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency before the fireworks show that London hopes to present the most exciting fireworks show to a global audience, show the world an open London, and welcome more companies and talents to come to London.
Sadik Khan sent a New Year greeting to the Chinese people. He believes that the development of London also benefits from China's reform and opening up. The investment of Chinese entrepreneurs and the influx of international students have made great contributions to the economic development of London. The Chinese community in London has also made a lot of efforts.
The London fireworks show began in 2000 and attracts around 100,000 spectators each year.
