This is the moment a fight broke out between a group of women at Notting Hill Carnival as police revealed more then 370 people were arrested at the two-day festival.

British Transport Police said its officers made nine arrests on Sunday.

A minute's silence was observed at Notting Hill Carnival yesterday in memory of the Grenfell Tower fire victims.

There were up to 313 arrests at last year's carnival. Here traditional Mas bands take to the parade route.

"On both Saturday and Sunday, I authorised a Section 60 Order across the Carnival area in response to the recent increase in violent crime in the capital".

The order allows officers to search people if they believe they may be carrying offensive weapons or in anticipation of violence.

On Monday the police presence was very visible, with officers wearing high-visibility vests stopping and searching men and women of all races as they walked along the pedestrianised streets.

Cynthia Nixon Claims That Cold Temps Are 'Notoriously Sexist'
Wait, what? Well, it might not be as odd as it sounds. "The Five" reacted Tuesday to the Nixon camp's claim, ahead of the WCBS debate at Hofstra University.

Notting Hill Carnival Gold Commander Dave Musker said: "We would like to thank all those who took to the streets to celebrate everything that the carnival stands for, in a kind and considerate manner".

Some people have criticised the Section 60 order being put in place but Musker has defended the choice as he said he was confident that the order "prevented. risky items being brought to carnival", adding that it was "proportionate and necessary".

While the deployment of knife-detection arches and 13,000 police officers with strengthened search powers over the weekend resulted in the seizure of 37 knives and a stun gun as well as a corrosive substance and a metal bar, the finale of the event saw a stabbing, with one male treated for non-life-threatening injuries at around 8 pm.

Nearly 7,000 officers, some from the Metropolitan Police's newly formed Violent Crime Task Force, will be policing Monday's event to "combat the threat of violent crime".

This was up from 6,100 at the less busy family day on Sunday.

Undercover police as well as officers from the force's firearms and dog units will be in place.
