Festive revellers brave wind and rain to hit the town in Christmas fancy dress 

Festive revellers flocked to Leeds city centre last night and battled against the wind and rain from Storm Atiyah while painting the town red. 

Partygoers were seen dressed in full Christmas garb and one woman even dressed as a Christmas tree as they made their way down the main streets  of the city. 

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning yesterday which will be in place from 3pm today through to 9am Monday.

But the spirits of Leeds party-seekers could not be dampened. However, as the night wore on, a few revellers looked a bit worse for wear as they staggered out of various pubs and clubs. 

One woman was seen stumbling down the street while being held up by friends walking alongside her. 

Others desperately battled with broken umbrellas and tied plastic bags around their heads to keep the lashing rain off them.  

Female revellers didn’t allow the cold temperatures to stop them enjoying their night, with many donning a Santa hat to keep themselves warm.
