A man is fighting for his life after being stabbed at the Notting Hill Carnival, Europe's biggest street party. He is believed to be in his 20s and asked an ambulance crew on Treverton Street near Ladbroke Grove for help after he suffered stab wounds at around 1pm on Monday 31 August.
Emergency services sent him to a central London hospital, where he is getting treatment for his life-threatening injuries. Three men, all aged 18, were arrested by police on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.
Around one million people are believed to have attended the two-day celebration of Caribbean culture, despite the downpours. Up to 60 bands in colourful costumes have been taking part in the Grand Finale street parade. There were also 38 sound systems to entertain the throng. Jeremy Corbyn, a frontrunner in the Labour leadership election, was spotted in the crowds.
Over the course of celebration, police have made over 150 arrests for assault, criminal damage, public order offences, possession of weapons, theft, sexual offences and drugs-related offences. On Sunday, officers arrested 126 people, while another 28 had been taken off the streets by 3pm on Monday, according to getwestlondon.
