Hundreds of thousands of people flocked to the second day of the Notting Hill Carnival after a rainy Sunday.
Despite the rain, there were 133 arrests and 20 weapons seized on Sunday, but Monday people thronged the streets to watch the spectacular Carnival floats on a second glorious day of celebrations, as the sun finally came out.
At 3pm there will be a silence for those bereaved in the Grenfell Tower tragedy in nearby Kensington, where 72 people lost their lives in the tower block blaze.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
