  • Thousands of fans besiege Battersea Park venue in the hope of meeting Twilight stars Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner

    Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were faced with thousands of screaming fans last night, as they stepped out on the red carpet to promote the latest Twilight film, New Moon.

    The sultry stars – who were also joined by Taylor Lautner and the film’s director – walked the red carpet before hosting a question and answer session and fan party at the venue in Battersea Park.

    The event was hastily arranged for distraught fans, after plans for a London premier were scrapped.

    But only 2000 made it inside the venue, beating tens of thousands of others applying for tickets on the Twilight fansite.

    The rest of the excited fans waited patiently outside for the stars to arrive. Some had been camped outside the venue since 8am yesterday morning in a bid to secure prime position.

    Despite freezing conditions, the superstar vampires spent time walking the red carpet and signing autographs for fans.

    Hotter-than-hot teenage heartthrob Rob showcased his signature laid-back look in a lose fitting suit and white shirt, while brooding vamp Kristen teamed a glam Proenza Schouler Spring 2010 look with simple black courts.

    The newly unveiled couple – who just days ago were seen holding hands and snuggling up as they touched down in France – gave nothing away about their relationship.

    The stars have been hard at work jetsetting around the globe to promote New Moon, which is released on November 20. In just the last few weeks they have attended press events in America, Brazil, France and Japan.
