REVELLERS partied in style last night to celebrate the start of the bank holiday weekend.
Millions of Brits don’t have to return to work until Tuesday – and it’s due to be a sun-drenched three-day weekend.
It’s the last bank holiday until Christmas, and drinkers last night made the most of it.
In Leeds, the streets were packed with young people dressed to the nines heading to nightclubs for a boozy evening.
And once they shut they once again poured out onto the streets, singing with buskers and dipping into McDonald’s for a midnight snack.
And Revellers in Birmingham hit the city’s infamous Broad Street as they danced their way into the weekend.
The warm temperatures meant many partygoers started the night early on and felt worse for wear at around midnight with several needing a helping hand from their friends.
Spirits were generally high and most of the clubbers had beaming smiles.
A group was spotted in golfing outfits, holding inflatable clubs.
Clubs were packed with Rosies and Heidi’s being the most popular.

It comes as Brits are set to bake by the end of the week as a “subtropical high” brings up a wave of warm weather from the coast of Portugal.
Temperatures are set to reach 26C today with the South West in for the warmest days.
Temperatures have not hit the highs of earlier this month, when a heatwave and droughts swept the UK, but will climb to pleasant levels to allow youths to enjoy post-A level and university celebrations.
the Met Office have reported that a “subtropical high” will bake Britain in the coming week.
Known as the Azores high, after a collection of autonomous islands off the coast of Portugal, the wave of warm weather is set to boost temperatures into the mid-20s.
Some northern parts of the country are likely to experience showers, high wind and lower temperatures.
However, much of the South is likely to experience sunnier weather, especially in the South West.
In fact, Britain is set to be warmer than Mexico, as a warm spell happily arrives in time for the bank holiday.
According to Aidan McGivern from the Met Office, the Subtropical High is where high pressure sits above the Azores islands for the majority of the year.
He said: “What’s been happening through this year so far and especially during the summer, is high pressure from the Azores keeps extending across the UK, hence the warm summer and very dry summer that we’ve had. And that repeating pattern repeats again this weekend.”
