Thousands of people have been attending a parade in London and a music beach party in Brighton as the UK continues its New Year celebrations.
Some 10,000 performers took part in the parade
Organisers said about 550,000 people attended London's annual New Year's Day parade, featuring an estimated 10,000 performers from a variety of nations.
And 20,000 music fans are attending DJ Fatboy Slim's Brighton beach party.
On New Year's Eve, strong winds and heavy rain caused the cancellation of official events in a number of cities.
Among those affected were Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Liverpool and Newcastle.
The New Year's Day parade in London, involving marching bands and carnival queens, began in Parliament Square at noon and continued for two miles to Piccadilly.
Motorbikes from the Goldwing Owners Club of Britain led the event.
They were followed by the Fort Myers High School Marching Band, who had to fight a travel ban by Florida education chiefs imposed because of fears about safety in London following the 7 July attacks in 2005.
Following the decision by parents to veto the ban, the 117-strong band raised $500,000 (£260,000) to make the journey.
Russian dancers, riders on penny-farthing cycles, miniature steam engines and a Hindu Scottish pipe band were among the other performers.
In Brighton, thousands are attending Fatboy Slim's beach party, Big Beach Boutique 3.
Only those who have a Brighton postcode have been able to buy the £30 tickets.
Ahead of the event, the DJ said: "There's nothing better than playing in your home town with a beautiful beach."
He added: "There's been a lot of planning. We don't want anyone to get hurt, we don't want anyone to get cold."
Public safety fears were raised the last time the Hove-based DJ, also known as Norman Cook, held a gig on Brighton beach, in July 2002.
The party attracted 250,000 people instead of the anticipated 60,000, leaving the emergency services struggling to cope.
A woman fell to her death from railings and more than 30 people were injured at the event, at which a lifeboat had to pluck revellers from the sea.
The events on London and Brighton are going ahead after a night of severe weather across the country which saw a number of New Year's Eve shows called off.
Hogmanay events in Edinburgh and Glasgow were among those affected, as were firework displays in Newcastle and Liverpool and a concert in Belfast.
But about 350,000 revellers saw a midnight firework display light up the skies above the London Eye attraction.
The London event went ahead despite poor weather overnight
Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said: "There was atrocious weather around the country last night and we wish to send our best wishes and goodwill to those who saw their New Year's Eve disrupted."
The Metropolitan Police - which had 3,200 officers on duty - said all viewing areas on the Thames were full.
Ninety-nine people were arrested, mainly for public order offences and drunkenness, police said.
Between midnight and 0400 GMT, the London Ambulance Service said it dealt with 1,562 calls, up 8% on the same period last year, with the majority related to alcohol.
A spokesman said it was the highest number of calls for a New Year's Eve it had received since the Millennium.
The BBC Weather Centre said high winds had now moved away from the UK and were not expected to return.
A spokesman said: "A lot of places took a battering but the strong winds have now moved off."
