A man has appeared in court charged with harassing actress Keira Knightley.

Marek Daniluk, 41, a Polish national, of Godolphin Close, Enfield, appeared before magistrates in Westminster who set a trial date for 4 June.

He was arrested on Thursday outside the Comedy Theatre, Panton Street, London where Knightley, 24, is currently appearing in Moliere's The Misanthrope.

It came after a woman complained to police about the behaviour of a man outside the theatre on Wednesday.

Knightley complained of being stalked by five people two years ago. It is believed to have led to her decision to move from the UK to the US.
