Have your say

Sheffield will be party central tonight according to a new survey.

Hotel operator Travelodge found 83 per cent of Sheffield residents quizzed will be going out and painting the city red to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

The survey also found 55 per cent of city folk were feeling more positive about the future than they had at any point in the last five years.

The firm said many of its Sheffield hotels were completely full for New Year’s Eve.

Sheffield was third in a table of party cities behind Birmingham and London.
