Lads in Newcastle appeared to have a wild time at their local pubs and even took to Bigg Market to flaunt their party skills.

One group cheered on their mate as he donned a vibrant pink tutu in a bid to get some reaction from the girls.

Meanwhile revellers in Birmingham showed off how close they are with friends, with some carrying each down Broad street.

Women were pictured taking their friends heels off, so they could walk barefoot after dancing the night away.

Burly merrymakers in Liverpool carried their bleary-eyed friends home, who apparently got too excited earlier on in the night.

Others were all smiles as they enjoyed large doner kebabs in the street, in a bid to ease the incoming hangover.

The Bank Holiday revellers were a lot luckier than music fans who flocked to Bramhall park for Reading and Leeds festival yesterday.

Festivalgoers descended in the area clad in waterproofs as heavy showers became stormy.

Met Office forecasters say Brits will be able to enjoy milder conditions today, with the worst set to come tomorrow.


The Bank Holiday weekend is also set to be a washout around the country with gale-force winds and heavy rain set to affect Notting Hill Carnival.

Spokesman Graham Madge said: “Saturday will see showers from the northwest to the southeast, so some in the northwest will see occasionally heavy showers with thunder and hail.

“The worst day is Sunday when everyone is going to see some prolonged and heavy rain throughout the day.”
