Merry revellers let loose last night to celebrate the beginning of the last Bank Holiday before Christmas.
Thousands made the most of the long weekend in Britain’s pubs and clubs but the night didn’t end well for everyone, as these pictures show.
At the beginning of the night dolled-up drinkers in Blackpool were captured hitting the streets in their Friday best before the clock struck twelve.
Yet by the wee hours, photographs show one man sitting in a pool of his own vomit, a young woman being led away in handcuffs and a drunken man asleep on the floor.
A young woman in heels was seen toppling over and had to be helped by friends while another group of girls got into a row near a taxi rank.
In another image two hunched-over women sit on the doorstep of a shop, smoking a cigarette while looking bleary-eyed.
And in another, a concerned police officer tries to wake up a grey-haired man dressed in a jacket and white shirt who has apparently fallen asleep.
