London’s 50th annual Notting Hill Carnival begins with a bang with the traditional J’ouvert celebration.

The J’ouvert celebration (from the French Jour ouvert ‘opening of the day’) is a procession that traditionally takes place before sunrise.

Revellers cover their body in mud and paint, to celebrate the start of Europe’s biggest street party.

Police officers with special skills for recognising the faces of offenders will be monitoring the festival in a crackdown on crime.
