Scotland’s biggest Hogmanay party in Edinburgh’s city centre, where more than 100,000 people were expected to join in, has finally been called off due to adverse weather conditions.
The storms are gathering force and in the last 10 minutes, we've discovered that water has opened a crack in our bedroom ceiling – presumably the winds have blown some slates off the roof – and has soaked our bed! I don’t suppose I can really complain. At least I have a roof over my head. But it’s not an ideal start to the New Year.
