London prepares for New Year's Eve

A massive operation is underway on the Southbank as London is preparing for tonight's New Year's Eve celebrations. 

Over 12,000 fireworks will be set off to celebrate the coming of 2015. 

After half a million people visited London to see the display last year, authorities decided to ticket the fireworks this year. Tickets cost £10 but have been completely sold out, leading to a lucrative second hand market. Organiser Jim Donald explains why they took the decision to charge for admission. 

Reya spoke to Mike Gibbons from the St John Ambulance to discuss the safety measures in place the event.
