From the refugee crisis to the Paris attacks, the UK general election to the Greek referendum and from the Iran nuclear deal to the Cop21 climate change summit, there was no end of dramatic news stories throughout 2015.

As we say goodbye to the old year and welcome in the new, IBTimes UK has compiled a 60- second montage of the most striking videos from 2015, including migrants making their way through Europe over land and sea, the birth of Princess Charlotte, the escape of El Chapo, the fall of Sepp Blatter and the world watching a solar eclipse.
