How to relax after the carnival
Is there a better way to relax after a tiring day at Notting Hill Carnival? We don’t think so.
Still going strong
It’s 5pm and the Notting Hill Carnival is still going strong.
As tributes were paid to victims of Grenfell Tower at the world-famous Notting Hill Carnival, revellers experienced mixed emotions.
Today’s events run until 8.30pm - and festivities start again at 9am tomorrow morning.
Mayor of London tells revellers to 'be safe'
On his official Facebook page, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan described the Notting Hill Carnival as a “unifying and positive force in this city”.
The Mayor continued: “I was honoured to take part in the opening ceremony this morning, which started the world-famous carnival parade, and to remember all those affected by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower which has left a tight-knit community in sorrow and mourning.
“The families of those who tragically lost their lives – many of whom are here today - made it clear they want to use this occasion as a way for people to support the community and to come together, honour, and celebrate the lives of their loved ones and that is exactly what we did today.”
As the festival will be busy tomorrow (August 28), Mr Khan advised those attending to go early and plan their journeys in advance.
He added: “Be safe and most importantly, have a wonderful time.”
At 3pm today (August 27), thousands of festival goers stopped to pay tribute to those who died as a result of June’s disaster.
'You could hear a pin drop'
The minute’s silence in honour of Grenfell Tower victims has been described as an “amazing” moment by those who watched it.
That's A LOT of people
Can you guess how many people are at this year’s Family Day?

Met Police seizes a kilo of cocaine
Met Police officers have seized one kilo one “uncut cocaine” in Catford as part of their festival operation.
But Twitter users are not happy with the Met’s use of the hashtag #NottingHillCarnival. One user said: “Catford is about 12 miles away from Notting Hill, in a different borough and takes about an hour to get to on the tube? So the link is?”
The Met Police hasn’t responded to the tweets yet.
Green for Grenfell
Notting Hill Carnival started earlier this morning in honour of those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy.
Survivors are asking festival goers to wear green in solidarity.

Speaking ahead of the event, Cllr Campbell said: “Notting Hill Carnival is traditionally an event which brings Londoners from different backgrounds together in one joint celebration.
“This year’s carnival will be particularly poignant in a year which has seen central London hit by devastating terrorist attacks and witnessed the unimaginable horror of the Grenfell Tower fire.
“We work closely with the organisers, London Notting Hill Carnival Enterprise Trust Ltd (LNHCET), and other agencies to ensure visitors and residents have the best time possible.”
