Hundreds of die-hard Harry Potter fans have set up camp in London ready for the world premiere of the last film in the franchise – two days before the stars walk the red carpet.
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson will be among the cast taking to the British capital’s Trafalgar Square on Thursday, to unveil Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II.

Devotees started pitching tents on the pavement on Tuesday, dressed in Potter outfits and holding banners as they started to queue.

Some fans had even traveled from Vancouver, Canada and Denmark to catch a glimpse of the stars as they prepare to introduce the final installment in the franchise later this week.
