BRIDPORT celebrated New Year's Eve in style as hundreds gathered in the town centre to celebrate.

Residents gathered in huge numbers along South Street and East Street for the countdown to the year 2024 under the Christmas tree.

Some creative costumes were on show, as locals dressed up as clowns, Father Christmas, Ozzy Osbourne and even traffic cones.

The town has a long tradition of celebrating the new year in fancy dress at Bucky Doo Square. 

Previous celebrations have seen people dressed as superheroes, panto characters and even footballer Lionel Messi after Argentina's World Cup victory in 2022.
