Drunken revellers kick off the four-day Bank Holiday weekend

Thousands of revellers made the most of the four day Easter Bank Holiday weekend as they celebrated into the early hours of this morning.

Party-goers took to Birmingham and Manchester city centres as they descended on pubs and clubs to celebrate, with many looking a little worse for wear as the night wore on.

With Good Friday and Easter Monday providing extra days off over the weekend, they saw it as chance to let their hair down, but some clearly took it a bit too far.

They didn’t let the chilly temperatures put of some scantily clad clubbers, with some photographed slumped in the street, vomiting on the floor, or being carried by friends as the drink took its toll.

Several ambulances were called to Birmingham’s Broad Street with one person carried by bouncers onto a spinal board out of a nightclub.

And fast food restaurants in the cities were also packed out as revellers lined up to grab late-night snacks, keeping staff rushed off their feet.
