Rain, fireworks and awesome costumes as Cornwall celebrates New Year
Heavy rain in parts of Cornwall failed to dampen the spirits of New Year's Eve revellers who took to the streets, pubs and bars to welcome in 2014.
In St Ives the rain held off until late in the night by which time the thousands who packed the seafront didn't care.
A stunning firework display capped off the town's biggest night of the year and what has become one of the UK's most talked about New Year's Eve parties.
Police officers mingled happily with revellers and helped create a friendly and easy going atmosphere in the town.

She wrote on social network website Twitter: "Huge thanks to all those who have worked hard to keep Devon and Cornwall safe tonight - top team effort.
