Hundreds of thousands attend Europe’s biggest festival – Notthing Hill Carnival 2011

They came in their hundreds of thousands to dance and have a good time, Rio de Janeiro-style. And yesterday revellers let their hair down in style at the Notting Hill Carnival in West London, with drumming groups, floats and sound systems all taking centre stage.
More than 6,500 police officers patrolled the streets for the second day of the event yesterday as Scotland Yard continued its unprecedented security operation just weeks after the riots.  Despite the recent London riots, that annual carnival 

was given the go ahead last week, much to the relief of regular festival-goers!
