On a New Year’s Eve like no other, revellers were forced to swap bars and pubs for their own homes with Sheffield under Tier 3 lockdown restrictions.

But this didn’t stop people in Sheffield marking the start of a new year in truly remarkable fashion.

As the clock struck midnight on a year many of us would wish to forget, a huge display of fireworks lit up the sky above Sheffield.
