Gumshoes and stilettos at premiere

Sherlock Holmes is back on the streets of London -- or rather Robert Downey Jnr, the actor who plays him, is, for the European premiere of 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'.

Also walking the red carpet in the British capital last night were co-stars Jude Law and Noomi Rapace, and director Guy Ritchie, Madonna's ex-husband.

The film, the sequel to the 2009 hit 'Sherlock Holmes', sees Mr Downey Jnr and Mr Law reprise their roles as the eccentric detective and his loyal sidekick Dr Watson.

This time they travel across Europe as they take on the criminal mastermind, Professor Moriarty, played by Jared Harris.

'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' will hit UK and European cinemas this weekend
