I was in a 90s band with 11 hit singles but I left and became a criminologist | The Sun

ANDREZ Harriott is best known as a former member of one of the UK's biggest boyfriends.

Damage were a UK R&B boy band who achieved mainstream successes in the 90s where they sold 4 million records worldwide.

Jade Jones, Rahsaan J Bromfield, Andrez Harriott, Coreé Richards and Noel Simpson made up the hit group.

However they were dropped by their record label in 2002 and they set up their own management company called Set It Off Management.

Although they supported Gabrielle on her UK Arena Tour in April of that year, tensions soon started to rise amongst the members.

After an argument, Coreé Richards decided to leave the group and although they initially continued as a musical ensemble, they split up less than six months later.

Since the breakup, the members of the group have had varied careers.

Andrez Harriott is notable from distancing himself from music altogether as he became a qualified criminologist.

He is currently the CEO of the Liminality Group which according to their description on Twitter, works 'across systems to change lives'.

He's also a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology and helps young people who are at risk of drifting into a life of crime.
