Comedian Russell Brand opened a café on an east London council estate which could be run entirely by recovering drug addicts.
The Trew Era Café opened its doors on the New Era housing estate where Mr Brand campaigned with residents to save them from eviction.
It will be run as a social enterprise funded by the profits from the star’s latest book Revolution.
The café, named after Mr Brand’s YouTube channel, will support the community rather than make money, its owners claim.
