The New Year really started off with a bang on a Thai island after a firework display went totally wrong.

Hundreds of fireworks unexpectedly exploded on a beach on Hua Hin in front of partygoers all at once.

During the short footage, panicked holidaymakers can be seen screaming and running away from the out-of-control display in the luxury beach resort.

One person fleeing the scene is heard saying: “Out of here, go!”

The 30-second spectacle was meant to last several minutes to celebrate the beginning of 2012.

Fortunately, no one was injured following the ruined firework display
