Huge queues of shoppers formed outside Selfridges in central London in the early hours of Tuesday morning, to get their hands on the best Boxing Day deals.

Some had been queuing since 4:30 am to purchase some discounted designer wear at the world famous department store, which is offering up to 50 percent discounts on selected items.

One young shopper Bruno said he is on the hunt for some designer merchandise, "I am kind of looking to get some designer shoes, maybe designer jacket or something, I have got like 300, 400 pounds to spend so hopefully I will get something good."

Selfridges opened to the public at 9am, security guards were on hand to control the queue and ensure calm and order was maintained.

It is expected that shoppers will spend GBP 4.5 billion (USD 6 billion) in total in the Boxing Day sales.
