Security giant G4S has won the job of protecting revellers at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay knees-up.
The three-day celebration begins with a torchlit procession and culminates in the city’s famous New Year’s Eve street party.
The event is set to attract in excess of 75,000 party-goers and hosts several live music stages and a fireworks bonanza from the city’s seven hills at the stroke of midnight.
It is widely regarded as one of the best New Year celebrations in the world. G4S will provide 690 guards, including 580 staff at the main street party itself.
