The next news on BBC One is at 6pm - until then do enjoy your afternoon.

:00:00.:00:13.

It's the final day of the Notting Hill Carnival -

:00:14.:00:18.

and, despite the focus on crime by police and much media

:00:19.:00:22.

in the run-up to the world's second largest annual street party,

:00:23.:00:25.

Carnival is being enjoyed for all the right reasons.

:00:26.:00:28.

The turn-out has been huge, the number of arrests

:00:29.:00:33.

is significantly down, and the emergency services have been

:00:34.:00:36.

getting hugs from people wanting to thank them for their work

:00:37.:00:39.

Dan Freedman is at Carnival this lunchtime, and I'm wondering

:00:40.:00:43.

about the feeling there after so many recent terror attacks

:00:44.:00:47.

- because Londoners are known the world over for stoically

:00:48.:00:49.

Just look behind me. It doesn't look like anybody is worried about any

:00:50.:01:05.

security threats. More than a million people were on the streets

:01:06.:01:09.

yesterday and we are expecting the same numbers once again today. Part

:01:10.:01:16.

of this London events that attracts all comers all of the time. We spoke

:01:17.:01:21.

to some people earlier about their feelings. I think we might be able

:01:22.:01:29.

to hear from some of them. Earlier I spoke to the net police Chief

:01:30.:01:35.

Commissioner about the police action here today.

:01:36.:01:38.

The extra measures for Carnival this year include a hostile vehicle

:01:39.:01:40.

We intend to keep this community and Carnival safe, and so obviously,

:01:41.:01:48.

Please engage with us if you have any concerns.

:01:49.:01:52.

But in addition to that, CCTV, automatic number plate recognition,

:01:53.:01:54.

So, Dan, the police seem to be doing their job very effectively, and it

:01:55.:02:13.

seems like a great atmosphere there. Absolutely. Arrests are down on last

:02:14.:02:19.

year. The only Carnival bigger than Notting Hill is in Rio. It's

:02:20.:02:23.

actually hotter in London today than in Rio, and that is why we have seen

:02:24.:02:32.

all corners come to Carnival today to celebrate. Police put the lower

:02:33.:02:36.

crime figures down today to what they are calling the grandson of

:02:37.:02:39.

fact. That has seen minutes of silence silences held here, to

:02:40.:02:51.

remember the people who were killed in Grenfell Tower. Most people are

:02:52.:02:55.

focused on having a good time at Carnival this year. It of course,

:02:56.:02:59.

and so they should. Hotter here than in Rio!

:03:00.:03:01.

A teenage boy has died at the Reading Music Festival.

:03:02.:03:04.

Paramedics were called to a tent in one of the campsites -

:03:05.:03:06.

but the 17-year-old was already dead.

:03:07.:03:10.

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

:03:11.:03:12.

A 29-year-old man has been killed in a road crash in Hertfordshire.

:03:13.:03:15.

He was driving in Welwyn yesterday afternoon -

:03:16.:03:17.

His passenger, a 30-year-old man, was seriously injured

:03:18.:03:21.

and is being treated at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

:03:22.:03:24.

Hertfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses.

:03:25.:03:28.

A video posted by the family of a woman who died after taking

:03:29.:03:32.

a fake MDMA drug in east London - has been viewed nearly

:03:33.:03:36.

three million times since it was posted on Thursday.

:03:37.:03:44.

Amy Vigus was at a music festival at the Olympic Park in Stratford

:03:45.:03:47.

Her family says it was a "moment of madness",

:03:48.:03:51.

Our Amy. I want to tell you a story about our Amy. She was a beautiful

:03:52.:04:08.

daughter, sister, cousin and friend. A tribute to Amy Vigus posted on

:04:09.:04:13.

social media by her family. It describes her as adventurous and

:04:14.:04:18.

caring, but as well as a tribute, the video acts as a warning. Our Amy

:04:19.:04:23.

made a mistake. In a moment of madness she took a substance she was

:04:24.:04:29.

led to believe was the party drug MDMA. Since the video was made

:04:30.:04:37.

public, millions have been moved by the tragedy. Amy made it home to

:04:38.:04:41.

Colchester after the music festival in London but collapsed. She was

:04:42.:04:46.

taken to Colchester General Hospital but doctors couldn't save her. The

:04:47.:04:50.

corridors of Colchester General Hospital echoed with the cries and

:04:51.:04:57.

screams of her family Members. Amy made a mistake. The video concludes

:04:58.:05:06.

with this plea to others tempted to take drugs. If you are in that

:05:07.:05:12.

situation, please remember our Amy and the consequences of her mistake

:05:13.:05:17.

on herself and her family she has left behind. Amy's family are now

:05:18.:05:23.

raising money for Colchester Hospital, their powerful video a

:05:24.:05:26.

condemnation of the dangers of drugs. Our Amy.

:05:27.:05:29.

Dogs are being signed up to become blood-donors -

:05:30.:05:31.

Three practices in Surrey, Hertfordshire and Berkshire run

:05:32.:05:36.

special donation clinics where people can bring their dogs

:05:37.:05:39.

along - provided they meet a special criteria.

:05:40.:05:42.

Hundreds of dogs needed a transfusion last year -

:05:43.:05:45.

As in human medicine, there is a need, a growing need,

:05:46.:05:53.

for blood for veterinary patients as veterinary medicine progresses.

:05:54.:06:00.

So having that service there available is brilliant.

:06:01.:06:08.

Now let's get a check on the weather forecast with Georgina.

:06:09.:06:17.

Good afternoon. It is an incredibly warm and sunny bank holiday Monday,

:06:18.:06:25.

and this stunning scene was captured by a Weather Watcher in Harold would

:06:26.:06:32.

this morning. More rays of sunshine on the way. A little bit hazy in

:06:33.:06:37.

places where there is some upper-level cloud, but still a very

:06:38.:06:43.

pleasant and warm day. Could even scrape 30 Celsius today. With light

:06:44.:06:49.

winds, really feeling that heat as well. Tonight, clear skies to start,

:06:50.:06:54.

but this cloud building and some mist and fog patches developing in

:06:55.:06:59.

the early morning. Stabling drive for many of us, feeling my Devo. --

:07:00.:07:11.

staying drive for many, though. We are looking at a largely dry day on

:07:12.:07:20.

Tuesday, temperatures around 27. The further south-east you go, the

:07:21.:07:24.

warmer it is. This cold front is pushing down from the north-west,

:07:25.:07:29.

and by Wednesday those temperatures will drop significantly. A damp

:07:30.:07:33.

start to Thursday, but brightening up as the day goes on. The biggest

:07:34.:07:38.

changes in the temperatures. Quite high over the next couple of days,

:07:39.:07:43.

but dropping down to the high teens on Wednesday, then settling where

:07:44.:07:46.

they should be for the time of year on Thursday and Friday. That's it

:07:47.:07:55.

from us. Our next news is at 6:20pm. Have a good afternoon.
