Although she's worked to reduce other forms

The region's biggest New Year celebration

:02:23.:02:25.

The Winter Carnival attracts tens of thousands of spectators,

:02:26.:02:31.

as street performers, bands and spectacular

:02:32.:02:32.

puppets make their way through the city centre,

:02:33.:02:34.

before an early evening firework display at the Civic Centre.

There'll be more fireworks at midnight on the city's quayside.

:02:37.:02:39.

There was an armed police presence, reflecting

Organisers say the free event has gone from strength to strength.

:02:41.:02:51.

It's certainly the biggest in the north east.

:02:52.:02:53.

We've been running it - this is probably the 11th year I've

:02:54.:02:56.

I mean, even before the parade starts, the streets are all lined

:02:57.:03:01.

with people wanting to watch the carnival and then gathering

:03:02.:03:04.

around Barras Bridge for the fireworks,

:03:05.:03:05.

Four men have been charged in connection with crowd trouble

:03:06.:03:14.

during a match between Carlisle and Hartlepool, in October.

:03:15.:03:16.

The incident is said to have happened at Brunton Park

:03:17.:03:18.

The men, all from Carlisle, are due in court next month.

:03:19.:03:26.

Onto today's matches, and two late goals wrenched three

:03:27.:03:29.

points away from Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.

:03:30.:03:30.

Boro were leading through a Grant Leadbitter goal before

:03:31.:03:32.

Man United scored twice in as many minutes.

:03:33.:03:38.

And an unhappy trip to Lancashire for Sunderland.

:03:39.:03:40.

An Andre Gray hat trick helped send them to a 4-1 defeat at Burnley.

:03:41.:03:46.

In the Championship, Newcastle's 3-1 win at home

:03:47.:03:48.

to Nottingham Forest last night puts them top of the table

:03:49.:03:50.

Carlisle are up to second in League Two after a 3-2 victory

:03:51.:03:54.

at Notts County Hartlepool beat Morecambe by the same score

:03:55.:03:57.

In the National League Gateshead beat Barrow 3-1.

:03:58.:04:00.

And in Scotland Berwick are bottom of League Two after a 3-1 home

:04:01.:04:03.

Wet and windy for a lot of revellers tonight.

:04:04.:04:15.

Let's get the regional forecast with Paul Hudson.

:04:16.:04:17.

Well, it's been a mild and windy day.

:04:18.:04:22.

It's going to start off fine this evening, but a weather

:04:23.:04:25.

front will spoil things for celebrations tonight.

:04:26.:04:26.

That band of rain sinking southwards.

:04:27.:04:28.

As it clears, there could well be one or two icy patches across parts

:04:29.:04:31.

So, for North Yorkshire, Co Durham, a very wet start to New Year's Day.

:04:32.:04:36.

That rain will continue to slip away southwards.

:04:37.:04:38.

To the north, it's colder but brighter, with sunshine

:04:39.:04:41.

So those showers may well turn a bit wintry.

:04:42.:04:44.

And that's it from us, for today, and for 2016.

:04:45.:04:53.

On behalf of everyone at Look North, I'll wish you a Happy New Year.

:04:54.:04:56.

And if you're celebrating tonight, have a good evening.

:04:57.:05:07.

wonderful New Year. You can keep up with all the best. Happy New Year.

:05:08.:05:16.

Good evening. As we head through the final few hours of 2016 the weather

:05:17.:05:23.

is on the change. We've got called her swooping in and there is a

:05:24.:05:30.

weather front bringing a soggy New Year's Eve. It is raining across

:05:31.:05:34.

southern Scotland and Northern Ireland and that will push south as

:05:35.:05:37.

we head towards parts of northern England. Showers moving in from the

:05:38.:05:41.

North Southwark could be icy
