In relation to policing the Carnival, the Metropolitan Police says there were 11 stabbings yesterday.
On Colville Terrace, a 29 year old man sustained a serious stab wound and is being treated in hospital while eight other individuals received knife wounds.
An 18 year old man received stab wounds in Southam Street and in a separate incident another man received a serious stab wound.
In total there were 252 arrests over Sunday and Monday.
"Although early indications are that reported crime is down at this year's Notting Hill Carnival, I am concerned by the number of stabbings over the weekend.
Stabbings are up on last year, and in some cases these are just centimetres from being a murder. Each will be thoroughly investigated and we will do everything possible to ensure those who brought trouble to Carnival are placed before the courts.
Our proactive operations in the days leading up to Carnival and the weekend itself were a great success and meant we were able to stop many crimes before they happened.
Two of my officers were injured during an arrest yesterday and this shows the risks they must take. I would like to thank all the officers and support staff for their hard work in the most difficult of weather conditions. Their commitment is a major factor in ensuring the Carnival is a safe and enjoyable event for the vast majority of those attending."
