Be careful if heading north for a NYE party

IF you are travelling north today, Queensland police are urging New Year's Eve revellers to be mindful of their personal safety, with bad weather tipped to concentrate crowds in Brisbane's city areas.

With showers and gusty winds forecast this year, people may choose to party in the more sheltered CBD and Fortitude Valley areas.

Inspector Chris Sang said police expected large crowds even in bad weather, and would be out in force to ensure the event was celebrated in safety.

"I think the people will still come out to celebrate New Year's Eve," Mr Sang said.

He urged people to keep their personal safety in mind, particularly in crowded areas.

He recommended keeping handbags and wallets close, taking care when withdrawing money from ATMs, and not leaving drinks unattended.
