Mardi Gras carnival preparations begin on Isle of Wight

Performers from Rio de Janeiro have arrived in the UK to teach how to dance, sing and make spectacular costumes for Mardi Gras.

They are visiting the Isle of Wight, where many of the local performers live with a range of disabilities.

Organisers hope the island's festival, on June 30, will be "like no other Mardi Gras there has been before".
