The LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider is designed to search for new phenomena in heavy quark (beauty and charm) systems, which could ultimately explain why we live in a universe made of matter and not antimatter, as well as giving insight into the origin of dark matter in the Universe. This talk will focus on the latest results from the LHC: the precision measurements that benchmark the Standard Model; the results that tantalisingly deviate from the Standard Model; and the discovery of many new particles, including pentaquarks.
