By SOP newswire

As thousands of people plan to take to the streets of Notting Hill for this year's Carnival the message from the Met is take care, keep safe and enjoy the event. 

Carnival, Europe's premier arts festival, is a unique and vibrant event that attracts thousands of visitors over the bank holiday weekend. 

The Met has been working closely with the organisers, London Notting Hill Carnival Limited and the other agencies involved including local authorities, the Greater London Authority and other emergency services for many months in the planning and preparation for the event.

DAC Chris Allison, said: 

"Carnival is a colourful and fun event enjoyed by thousands of people every year and we are doing everything we can to ensure that everyone who does come is able to enjoy the event in a safe environment."
