United Kingdom police probe second Kevin Spacey allegation

Kevin Spacey presents the award for excellence in television at the BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills Calif

London's authorities have launched a second investigation into additional sexual assault allegations made against Kevin Spacey. "Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command are investigating".

Police refused to name the suspect in the case which they stated was the same individual accused in relation to a separate assault alleged to have taken place in 2008 in the same area.

Last Vic, Old Vic Theater reported that it has received 20 personal testimonies against Kevin Spacey for "misconduct".

The American actor is facing numerous claims of sexual assault and harassment, as part of a broader scandal in Hollywood sparked by allegations against mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The allegation was made just a day after the Old Vic released results of its own internal investigation into the matter.

Spacey was artistic director of The Old Vic from 2004 to 2015.




Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp was the first to come forward with allegations against Spacey, saying the older actor tried to "seduce" him when he was 14.

Spacey said he did "not remember the encounter" but offered "the sincerest apology" if it had taken place.

Current artistic director Matthew Warchus said: "These allegations have been a shock and a disturbing surprise to many of us".

Eight people have claimed that Spacey sexually harassed House of Cards employees during his time on the set, including one who he allegedly sexually assaulted. He has denied allegations of assault, but said he is now seeking "evaluation and treatment" of his behavior.

The BBC has contacted Spacey's legal representatives for comment.
