Unsuspecting shoppers in Borough Market on Friday morning were confronted by a stampede of camera-wielding celeb-spotters hoping to catch a glimpse of Jude Law.

Law was in the market for Realtime Movie, an art event by Pawel Althamer staged by Tate Modern as part of its current The World as a Stage exhibition which explores the relationship between performing art and visual art.

A trailer posted on YouTube and shown in cinemas invited the public to Borough Market at 11.30am on Friday 30 November.

Hundreds turned up for a re-enactment of the scene in the trailer where Law visits Applebee's Fish in Stoney Street.
