Erasure's Andy Bell on success, being born performer and 35 years of London life

With 24 consecutive UK Top 40 hits between 1987 and 2007 and having sold over 24 million albums worldwide, Erasure were one of the biggest British bands of the 1980s and 1990s.

Nearly 30 years after first forming in London, the electro-pop duo are still going strong, releasing top 20 albums, selling out venues across the country and touring around the world.

Reya El-Salahi caught up with frontman Andy Bell in north London on the final day of the UK leg of the group's 2014 worldwide tour.
