- Despite near freezing temperatures crowds of revellers hit the streets of central Newcastle last night
- Inebriated men and women were seen stumbling from pub to club and steadying one another
- Northumbria Police made an appearance before clearing semiconscious party-goers from the streets
Newcastle is one of the UK’s most popular nightspots and revellers traveled from across the country to enjoy its famous party scene last night.
Most party-goers braved the cold – a near-freezing 3C – opting for more revealing outfits rather than warm coats and jackets on Good Friday.
Taxis transported more-than-tipsy men and women from pubs to clubs in the centre of the city.
Police could be seen hanging around hoping to prevent trouble brewing. But for the most part they were busy helping revellers who had had a bit too much – and were looking worse for wear.
Friends clung to one another as they stumbled across the streets, seemingly unaware of oncoming vehicles.
The mood was joyous but it’s doubtful the smiles lasted until this morning, when Newcastle’s revellers likely woke to stabbing headaches and unpleasant hangovers.
