London's Metropolitan Police said on Monday they had arrested 245 people during the two-day event in west London, while British Transport Police said they detained 31 people.

The carnival celebrates Caribbean culture and attracts about 1 million people with its mix of flamboyant dancers, rousing steel bands and booming outdoor sound systems.
