Yes, there was a dancing policeman. There's a always a dancing policeman at Carnival

So, it was Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, as west London became a great big bloody danceathon – and everyone was invited. There was something for everyone at Europe’s largest street party, from famous musicians (we’re looking at you, Wiley) to upcoming musicians (hiya, Stefflon Don and Ella Eyre!) to normos like me and you. Here, then, is a round-up of some people have a right bloody good time at Notting Hill Carnival, including that dancing policemen that went viral. It’s a reassuringly reliable fact that a policeman will go viral every year at Carnival.

It’s estimated that around a million people attended Carnival over the weekend

Apparently some people who lived nearby were charging punters £3 to use their toilets. Welcome to London, where it’s three quid a shit

Craig David enjoyed some absolute madness

London Mayor Sadiq Khan spoke about the Grenfell fire, noting that this year’s Carnival “takes place in the context of sadness and sorrow”. He added: “This carnival weekend, we honour the victims”

Some Carnival-goers carried hopeful banners and placards
