Dartford band prepares for Notting Hill Carnival

A Kent-based carnival band is making final preparations to join the Notting Hill celebrations in London.

The Bacchanalia Mas Band is based in Dartford and has been working on costumes, which can cost up to £4,000 a year.

There is a sporting theme to the west London carnival in the Olympics year, with some costumes reflecting that.
