Police have arrested 36 people at a London underground station over fears they were planning to cause trouble at the Notting Hill Carnival.
Officers intercepted the group of males at King's Cross tube as they headed towards the carnival - which reached its climax on Monday - from North London.
The 36 were arrested to prevent a breach of the peace and prevented from travelling on to the event amid concerns of disorder.
However, the festivities remained largely peaceful on Monday.
Police made 152 arrests, mainly for drug and public order offences, as well as robbery and assault.
The number was in line with expectations, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said, as on Bank Holiday Monday last year there were 172 arrests.
The total number of arrests during the two-day event provisionally stands at 250, the spokesman added.
Police dealt with a number of serious incidents during the festivities.
On Sunday a 20-year-old man was left in a serious but stable condition after being stabbed in the back and buttocks in Ladbroke Grove.
The Met said a 14-year-old boy was slashed with a sharp object in Golborne Gardens.
An extra 2,000 police officers were drafted in to support the event on Monday which brought the total number of officers to 7,000.
Monday's festivities have been similar to those on Sunday with brightly-dressed performers making their way through the streets of London as part of the annual Caribbean-inspired celebration.
Officers were granted stop and search powers within the area where the carnival takes place, while police advised visitors to only use mobile phones when absolutely necessary.
Commander Christine Jones said: "Mobile phones, especially expensive ones, are a glittering prize for thieves.
"Don't give them a head start by displaying them openly and only use them if it's absolutely necessary.
"Pick up one of our maps instead and pre-arrange meeting points with family and friends."
