This year's Notting Hill Carnival passed without major incident thanks to the hard work of the Police, organisers and many others.
Although I have worked at this event on many occasions this was my first one for TfL. Once again I am hugely impressed by all the work that goes on the prepare for this event. The road closures, diversions, bus service alterations and the supply of information to everyone were all done really well by an experienced set of teams.
There were relatively few arrests, the transport system catered for all the Carnival-goers, and people generally had a good time.
This is my opportunity to thank everyone who was involved, the time they gave up across what is the last bank holiday weekend before Christmas, and for making it such a success.
