One of the world’s largest street music festivals has taken place in London.

Around sixty bands in colourful costumes took part in the Notting Hill Carnival. Thirty-eight sound systems entertained the crowds.

Revellers at the annual event donned raincoats and held umbrellas as west London was hit by downpours.

More than a million people are believed to have attended the event across its two days.
