Who'd be a copper? Sad

More than 400 people were arrested at the Notting Hill Carnival over the bank holiday weekend and three teenagers were among five people who were stabbed. - Telegraph last year.

Like GoOnThen, never again will I go. I went twice in the mid 80's, total aggro and gangs running amok, stabbings, muggings, open drug use with no action whatsoever from plod. I'm far too old for that carry on.

I suspect the report will be only a few arrests for drunkenness.
Hopefully we will at least be spared clips of dancing policemen.

The BBC has made a documentary series called "Policing The Met" for the last few years, and has been worthwhile viewing. 

This particular episode, first shown in 2015, in part highlights some of the misery this annual Festival of Crime and Violence brings to the capital, to both police and residents.

Day One, optimistically called 'Family Day'.

106 arrests, for such 'family values' related activities as possession of drugs, public order offence, possession of weapons and many other vibrant violent assault offences, including sexual ones. 

A staggering 8000 police officers have been deployed to counter the public threat posed by this pernicious event, along with the ever-present daily danger of terror attacks, and the spectre of people possibly turning violent because of anger over the Grenfell Tower disaster. (Quite why the latter should turn someone to violence Allah alone knows). That's on top of the anti-terror measures that Peace-Loving Religions have enforced on the capital.

Oh, and many police will be required on the perimeter of the event to perform checks to try and prevent knives and acid adding to the vibrant atmosphere. I can't think why a Carnival should require people bringing along knives and acid, but there you go.

Tbh it does not sound like an acid attack -- three people with mild skin irritation -- more like someone chucked a drink over them (which is obviously anti-social to say the least) and caused panic.

The Notting Hill Carnival was branded a disgrace last night after it was revealed that 31 police officers were attacked during the two-day event.

They were slashed with broken bottles, spat at, bitten and had acid thrown at them.

In one of the worst confrontations, three PCs had bloody spit sprayed in their faces by a man claiming to be HIV positive. 

Four people were stabbed, more than 300 arrested and dozens of weapons seized during Europe's biggest street carnival. Although there were fewer arrests than last year's record 454, a three-week crackdown had seen hundreds banned from attending.

Ken Marsh, chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation representing the capital's 32,000 rank-and-file officers, said at least 31 officers were attacked.

'We cannot carry on like this. It is a disgrace,' he said. 'My brave colleagues were attacked for just doing their job.
