Hundreds of thousands of revellers have descended upon London's Notting Hill for one of the world's biggest and brightest street events, the Notting Hill Carnival.
Colourful floats, sound systems, steel drums and Caribbean food stalls bring the streets of the now-affulent Notting Hill to life, as it has done since 1966.
Hundreds of youngsters took part in Sunday's children's day which traditionally starts the two-day event.
