Costumes from the Oscar-winning big screen adaptation of musical Les Miserables have gone on display in Hampshire.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is exhibiting 19 costumes and a selection of props which have been specially flown in from Los Angeles.

It is the first time the costumes from the hit film - which won three Oscars - have been displayed in Britain.

HMS Victory and Portsmouth Naval Base were used as locations for the film.

Among the items on display is the Valjean convict costume worn by Hugh Jackman while filming scenes in the city.

Various costumes including those worn worn by Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier are also being exhibited.

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard has worked with NBC Universal Archives and Collections on securing the exhibits.

Hollywood blockbuster Les Miserables - for which some scenes were also filmed in Winchester - was nominated for BAFTAs and Academy Awards for its costume design.

The two-week exhibition runs until 14 April.
