Los Angeles based Naveen Andrews has branded all Londoners "alcoholics", and is relieved he has found a place which encourages clean living.

The former drink and drug addict ditched the British metropolis for Los Angeles in a desperate attempt to escape memories of his hard substance abuse, but although many natives of the British capital live healthy lives, Andrews is less than convinced.

He says, "In London everyone's an alcoholic but no one admits it.

"Out here it's perfectly acceptable to be clean, dare I say it, it's almost fashionable."
