Despite the bad weather over one million visitors are expected to attend the two-day event which is the largest of its kind in Europe. The event has taken place on the West London streets every August Bank Holiday weekend since 1964.

The annual celebration sees a five-kilometer (three-mile) route through west London sealed off to traffic and taken over by booming sound systems and dancers in exotic headdress.
