Magical atmosphere at Harry Potter shop opening

EXCITED Harry Potter fans in fancy dress queued in the rain today to be among the first to have a chance to buy wands, chocolate frogs and broomsticks from a new theme shop.Oliver’s in Trafalgar Street opened its doors for the first time at noon.Purple-cloaked sales staff greeted throngs of excited shoppers of all ages, eager to buy official Potter-themed merchandise.The interior of the shop has been decorated to resemble one of the otherworldly boutiques in Diagon Alley – the magical market street of the Potter universe.Jessica Spencer, 27, came from Horsham to queue from 11am to make sure she was the new shop’s first customer.“It’s perfect isn’t it – Brighton would have a lot of wizards I think. It’s probably the only place where you could walk down the street in wizard’s robes and no-one would bat an eyelid.”
