Lord of the Rings star Ian McKellen had a bite to eat in a Wakefield city centre restaurant ahead of a theatre show tonight.

The X-Men actor was dining at Robatary on Northgate before a performance later this evening at the Theatre Royal Wakefield.

Sir Ian is marking his 80th birthday with a theatre tour of tales and anecdotes from his distinguished acting career.

The show - Ian McKellen on Stage: With Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and YOU - has sold out.
