Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone was hailed as a magical masterpiece by the children who crammed Leicester Square for last night's glittering world premiere. The verdict was unanimous - the movie is a guaranteed smash hit.

Guests to the London Premiere included All Saints star Natalie Appleton, who arrived with her nine-year-old daughter Rachel - herself the child star of the film Tomb Raider in which she played the young Lara Croft. Rachel said of Harry Potter: "It was brilliant - but quite scary. The best bit was Lord Voldemort." She added: "It was quite long though."

Cast members who attended the premiere include Richard Harris, Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters. JK Rowling, author of the phenominally successfull Harry Potter series, said: "It all went wonderfully well. I am so relived and happy. The all-British cast was a fantastic asset."
