Notting Hill Carnival 2014
The capital has been taken over by Europe's biggest street festival with dancers and musicians (pictured top and bottom right) parading through the streets joined by crowds of visitors.
More than one million people are expected to attend the Caribbean celebration despite the expected rain today. A gang crime crackdown in the run-up to the party has seen 157 arrests and the seizure of guns, drugs and thousands of pounds in cash. But police officers on the street looked relaxed yesterday afternoon, with one joining in the fun as a dancer twerked in front of him (main picture).
