Les Miserables: Stars on red carpet for world premiere

Stars of the new Les Miserables film, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, have attended the world premiere in central London.

Director Tom Hooper - who won an Oscar for the King's Speech - hopes his film will win over people who avoid musicals, he said at the event.

The film is based on the long-running stage musical that has been seen by 60 million people worldwide.
