Formula One star Lewis Hamilton has teamed up with Transport for London (TfL) and drinks business Diageo to announce a three-year sponsorship deal for free travel on New Year's Eve. In the run up to the big day, Diageo's Responsible Drinking campaign will feature across the TfL network, including on Tubes, buses and at Underground stations.

Hamilton said: 'We all want to have a good time this party season, but a good time will be a better one if you can remember it and get home safely.'

Londoners will benefit from free travel on Tubes, buses, trams and a number of trains from 23:45 on New Year's Eve until 4:30 the next day.

Tube, Docklands Light Railway and tram services will run all night, with night buses and 24-hour bus routes running as normal.
