Notting Hill Carnival

New figures from the Metropolitan Police show that 230 people were arrested during the Notting Hill Carnival. However, they did report a crime fall of 31 percent when compared to last year. Thus, they feel that this year’s carnival was a success.

Reports show that more than one million people attended this years three day street festival in west London. There were several arrests on Monday night after bottles and other missiles were thrown at some of the officers.

However, Inspector Jo Edwards said that the event had been largely trouble free. For the fourth year, there were no firearm incidents. Most carnival-goers had a fantastic time. A large part of the bank holiday weekend passed without serious incident.

Of course, Jo Edwards did go to talk about some of the trouble that they did see. He noted that, just like in previous years, some people were determined to ruin the fun for others. However, these people were taken care of as quickly as possible.

Although the Met only arrested 230 people, British Transport Police also arrested 53 people. Throughout the whole carnival, London Ambulance Service staff dealt with about 549 casualties. 41 of these people had to be taken to the hospital. The rest of them were just treated for some minor injuries.

In the four weeks running up to the event, more than 100 people were arrested. There were also a large amount of drugs and weapons taken off the street. This was done in order to make sure that things ran as smoothly as possible, and it seem to help this year.
