Hollywood star Will Smith has been shown around London by Labour MP Chuka Umunna.

The pair visited Brixton and Lambeth, calling into a music venue, coffee shop, before finishing with a question and answer session at St Martin's School in Tulse Hill.

Great to show Will Smith around Brixton this morning with @jowellt. More to follow


Pupils at St Martins, many of whom are my constituents, had no idea Will Smith was coming to school today. Incredible reception!


Great to show off our awesome #Lambeth - Will wanted to see "real" London and it doesn't get more real than Lambeth!
