Notting Hill Carnival has kicked off with its parade today (28 August) and those involved took the opportunity to remember the lives lost at nearby Grenfell Tower.

Wearing green t-shirts which read “Remembering Grenfell”, members of the Emancipated Run Crew joined, and survivor Zoe Dainton, addressed crowds.
