A beaming Sky News reporter was covered in paint by a cheering crowd as he appeared on live TV from the Notting Hill Carnival.

Joe Tidy could not stop smiling as revellers gathered round him and splattered his face and body with colourful paint and powder.

The presenters in the studio were left laughing and speechless after watching the news correspondent try and interview the jolly carnival-goers, only to be left in a mess.

The report began with Mr Tidy speaking to a group at the street party on Sunday morning, who said the culture of carnival is “within us” and they had been attending it since they were children.

Mr Tidy’s shirt is sprayed with paint, as he says to the camera: “Here we go, the paint, here we go, oh dear. Ok, yes, that’s a bit of paint on me, great. “

Still smiling, he adds: “Ah come on, it was going to happen, wasn’t it. Right, I’ll hand back to you guys.”

The studio presenters tell him: “Joe, if you’re going to be down there, you’ve got to get into the spirit of it” before the reporter exclaims: “I need overalls” and “It’s not even nine o’clock yet!”

A reveller then smears a hand print of blue paint across the grinning journalist’s face.

The two-day west London carnival began on Sunday morning with a ceremony of remembrance for the Grenfell victims.

Over the next two nights Notting Hill will be transformed into a feast of music, dancing and colour as floats parade through the streets.
