Notting Hill Carnival came to a close today, in an explosion of colour, sequins, feathers and twerking.
However, the joy of the two-day event has been somewhat marred by the fact that there have been over 200 arrests during the festivities. There have been four incidents involving people being stabbed, and 26 knives have been seized by the police. Officers also seized more than 150 canisters of nitrous oxide with a street value of over £2,000.
Despite these incidents, the parade was still a glorious sight to behold. So sit back, relax, and revel in the outrageous fun that was Notting Hill Carnival.
