New Zealand’s night sky once again filled with colours as the clock tick 12 and the country welcomes the year 2021.

Thousands gathered in the harbour foreshore to celebrate the New Year 2021- with crowds free to mingle as the country enjoys an absence of coronavirus cases.

However, Melbourne, Australia’s second-most populous city, has cancelled its fireworks.

Melbourne mayor Sally Capp said: “For the first time in many, many years we made the big decision, difficult decision to cancel the fireworks.

“We did that because we know that it attracts up to 450,000 people into the city for one moment at midnight to enjoy a spectacular display and music. We are not doing that this year.”
