New Zealand has become the first country to welcome in 2014 with a spectacular firework display from Auckland’s Sky Tower.

Thousands of cheering revellers rang in the New Year at 11am UK time as multi-coloured fireworks exploded across the city skyline at midnight.

Many danced in the streets while those lucky enough to be able to get on a boat witnessed the incredible light fantastic show on the water as horns were sounded.

SkyCity – a casino and event centre in Auckland – has an impressive tower that provides a dramatic backdrop to the annual fireworks.

Twitter was instantly flooded with well wishes and echoes of “Happy New Year”, as New Zealanders shared pictures of their celebrations.

The next major New Year’s celebration is in Japan.

Thousands of visitors will pray, ring bells and toss coins as offerings at shrines, wishing for health, wealth and happiness.

Midnight in Tokyo is 3PM UK time, and you can follow live updates from across the world with our live blog here.
