London welcomes 2013 in style

AFTER a spectacular 2012 full of celebrations – from the Diamond Jubilee to the Olympics and Paralympics, the capital yesterday kicked off the New Year in style with the 27th annual New Year’s Day Parade. Starting at Piccadilly and making its way down Whitehall to Westminster, the parade brought together more than 10,000 performers, including pupils from the Germantown High School Warhawk marching band from Wisconsin, pictured by Trafalgar Square.
