J.K. Rowling has admitted that she would support a British version of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.

The park opened in Orlando, Florida last year. However, London mayor Boris Johnson previously stated that he "bitterly resents" the decision to base the attraction in the US.

Asked if she would like a similar park to be built in the UK, Rowling told the PA: "I'm smiling because I sat next to Boris Johnson at a dinner not long ago and he took issue with that also.

"I will be completely candid and say I think the Florida climate is more conducive to it, although it is a little surreal because it's snowy."

However, she added: "If they could do it as well as they have in Florida I would love that."
