Coronavirus: New Year’s fireworks in London canceled due to pandemic


The New Years fireworks display in London will not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sadiq Khan said.

The city’s mayor said the annual event will not take place this year because “we just can’t afford” to bring people together as they normally would.

Speaking on LBC radio, Mr Khan said: “I can tell you that there will be no New Years fireworks this year like in previous years.

“We just can’t afford to have the number of people gathered on New Years Eve.”

The mayor added, “What we’re working on is doing something that people can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their living room on TV. ”
