Police receive report of sex offence claims following allegations against actor Noel Clarke


Police have said they have received a third party report relating to claims of sexual offences committed by a male, after allegations were made against the actor Noel Clarke.

In a statement, the Met Police said: "On Wednesday 21 April police received a third party report relating to allegations of sexual offences committed by a male over a period of time. Officers are currently assessing the information.
"We would urge anyone who believes they have been subjected to a sexual offence to report this to police so the information can be assessed and investigated accordingly. There are specially trained officers ready to provide advice and support."
The force added there was no investigation under way at the moment.

In an statement yesterday, Clarke said: "I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing."

It comes after more than 20 women came forward to allege that Noel Clarke had bullied or sexually harassed them.

Since the allegations were made, a number of his co-stars have made efforts to distance themselves from him, with one calling his behaviour the "industry's best kept secret for years.


Christina Chong, who played Nell McBride in the Sky action series, made the claim on Twitter, adding: "

"If in doubt, trust me, it's true. Why would 20 women put themselves through reliving their traumas to bring down an actor who isn't even a household name?

"He's a sexual predator".

She concluded by using the hashtag #stoppable – a reference to Clarke's production company called Unstoppable.

Chong went on to share other allegations on her social media account, as well as advice and rules on how to perform in nude or sex scenes.
