Europe's biggest street party, Notting Hill Carnival has just ended with a fresh row of controversy. The mega event that celebrates the culture of the British has come under the scanner for its violent attack on the officers who were managing and guiding the participants of the carnival.
For those who do not know what Notting Hill Carnival is, it is an annual festival celebrated on the streets of Notting Hill, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London since 1966. What began as a usual festival, took an ugly turn when police officers were attacked with bottles and blood, leading onto to clashes between the two and several arrests for the same.
