JK Rowling has been speaking ahead of the first performance of the two-part West End play, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. The play picks up where the last book left off, with Hazza P as a middle-aged civil servant. 

The play, by Jack Thorne, is based on the story by him, JK Rowling and director John Tiffany.
