British Carnival in full swing

Social Share

A reveller dances as they parade through the street the during second day of the Notting Hill Carnival in London. The carnival, Europe’s largest street festival, began successfully with few problems reported on Sunday.
     The festival closed before dark this year to discourage any repetition of the arson and looting which erupted in London and other cities earlier in the month. Metropolitan Police described the opening day of the two-day festival as peaceful, and reported only 33 arrests, including six for assault and one for an offensive weapon.
