Boxing Day partygoers were dressed to impress as they ignored the chilly temperatures and the Omicron threat to hit the streets and continue the Christmas celebrations.

Crowds were pictured getting in to the festive spirit as they took to bars and clubs in Wigan city centre to party the night away in fancy dress, an annual tradition for the Lancashire town.

The Boxing Day night tradition, which sees clubbers dress up in costume and head to bars centred around the King Street area of the English town, couldn’t go ahead last year due to restrictions imposed to limit the spread of Coronavirus

Some of the best looks of the night came from partygoers wearing character-inspired fancy dress, with one group going as the gang from Super Mario while others dressed as Where’s Wally.

Revellers headed out to bars and clubs in their droves ahead of Government discussions today which could see New Year’s Eve celebrations impacted if additional curbs are brought in to control the spread of the Omicron variant.

Restrictions in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, which came in yesterday and today, mandate that clubs in those devolved regions must close, in an effort to counter the rapid spread of the rising Covid cases.

The Prime Minister will hold talks with advisers to discuss whether legal curbs are needed to deal with the threat of Omicron.

Downing Street is understood to be leaning towards new guidance urging people in England to be careful and limit contacts – rather than imposing new legally binding restrictions such as table service in pubs or limits on household mixing.

But this could change if data on hospitalisations suggests the NHS could be overwhelmed by a wave of coronavirus infections.

Possible restrictions considered by the PM over the past few days include closing pubs and restaurants indoors, bringing back the rule of six or restricting the number of households meeting indoors, and limiting capacity at mass events.
