Good evening. stay with us on BBC One,

:00:14.:00:14.

Notting Hill Carnival has drawn to a close this year

:00:15.:00:18.

with arrests at a similar level to last year - despite heightened

:00:19.:00:21.

Hundreds of thousands of people crowded into

:00:22.:00:25.

the streets of West London and for the second day running,

:00:26.:00:28.

respects were paid to the victims of Grenfell Tower, as Dan

:00:29.:00:30.

It's carnival day two, and we're stowaways on board one

:00:31.:00:40.

Well, the carnival is now in full swing.

:00:41.:00:45.

We're on board Smoky Joe's Roadshow float.

:00:46.:00:48.

The noise is deafening, the bass is shaking my chest.

:00:49.:00:52.

But on the ground, amongst the sequins, is a security challenge

:00:53.:01:00.

heightened by an unprecedented year of terror in London.

:01:01.:01:03.

I think things are developing and changing, and so are our

:01:04.:01:09.

responses to the nature and extent of any possible threat.

:01:10.:01:13.

Clearly, we're using technology to support us

:01:14.:01:16.

in protecting our communities, and so we will use anything

:01:17.:01:21.

that is lawful and proportionate to help us keep communities safe.

:01:22.:01:27.

So far, arrests are down compared to last year,

:01:28.:01:29.

Anything could happen to anyone, anywhere.

:01:30.:01:35.

That's what terrorists want you to do, be inside and be afraid,

:01:36.:01:38.

so you can't do what they want you to do - you have

:01:39.:01:41.

We never yield, we are British, we have our roots in

:01:42.:01:47.

the West Indies, or whatever, but we see it as we are all one.

:01:48.:01:52.

We feel safe, we come every year, the usual occasion for us.

:01:53.:01:55.

Once again, today, at 3pm, the sound systems were silenced

:01:56.:01:58.

as a mark of respect for the victims of Grenfell.

:01:59.:02:05.

If you judge a community on how it responds in the face

:02:06.:02:09.

of terror and tragedy, then this community is passing that

:02:10.:02:11.

A teenage boy has died at the Reading Music Festival.

:02:12.:02:22.

Paramedics were called to a tent in one of the campsites, but the

:02:23.:02:25.

Police say his death is being treated as 'unexplained'.

:02:26.:02:29.

Next, a martial art you may not have heard of.

:02:30.:02:32.

Gatka - it's a form of combat training followed by Sikhs.

:02:33.:02:35.

It was only introduced to the UK 25 years ago,

:02:36.:02:38.

but it's growing rapidly in popularity.

:02:39.:02:41.

Today the National Championships were held in Chigwell in Essex -

:02:42.:02:44.

In the red corner and the blue, this is the Gatka UK Championship,

:02:45.:02:53.

Yeah, gatka was introduced to the Sikh fold by the sixth

:02:54.:03:02.

But this also meant not just physically or aggressively,

:03:03.:03:07.

but humbleness without service to mankind, without meditation,

:03:08.:03:10.

without forgiveness, without compassion, you can't

:03:11.:03:11.

The aim is to land the most hits on your opponent and defend

:03:12.:03:19.

Hundreds of years old, it came to the UK 25 years ago.

:03:20.:03:26.

It's taught us a lot of discipline, commitment, and we made

:03:27.:03:29.

It helps them stay connected to their roots and to the values

:03:30.:03:34.

that their parents would have taught us.

:03:35.:03:40.

Before, I would look down on the floor.

:03:41.:03:46.

It is watched over by the new MP for Slough, also president

:03:47.:03:49.

That is the second year out of five that we've held

:03:50.:03:53.

the championship in London, and I am hoping this

:03:54.:03:56.

annual event will go on from strength to strength.

:03:57.:04:00.

And maybe the gatka champion of tomorrow

:04:01.:04:02.

It's goodnight from me, I'll leave you now with Wendy

:04:03.:04:11.

What a bank holiday it has been. Unlikely it seemed after the rest of

:04:12.:04:22.

August. 28 degrees today. Beautiful sunshine across London and the home

:04:23.:04:27.

counties and a fine evening now. We have a bit of cloud and there will

:04:28.:04:32.

more through the night. Particularly in Kent and Sussex and the Thames

:04:33.:04:40.

Estuary. There could be the odd shower. A warm night. After the

:04:41.:04:44.

cloud clears tomorrow, there will be some warm sunshine in the afternoon

:04:45.:04:49.

and anything but that on Wednesday, really cool and once the rain sets

:04:50.:04:53.

in around noon, it will stick around for most of the day and be heavy.

:04:54.:04:57.

You can see it does brighten up towards the ends of week. Some

:04:58.:05:01.

showers on Friday. But a fine weekend.

:05:02.:05:03.

showers on Friday. But a fine weekend. Darren Bett has the

:05:04.:05:12.

national forecast. Hello, the major weather story is in catastrophe in

:05:13.:05:20.

Texas. Of course the Harvey made land fall as

:05:21.:05:22.
