London - Notting Hill Carnival 25.08.08
Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event which takes place over two days in Notting Hill, London every August. It has gone on since 1965 and is led by members of the Caribbean population, many of whom have lived in the area since the 1950s. The carnival has attracted up to 2 million people in the past, making it the second largest street festival in the world, after Rio.
We were lucky to leave before a riot started around 8pm when young guys started throwing bricks and bottles at the police. 300 people were arrested through out the day which wasn't to bad giving there was 850,000 people there on Monday!
