Police have confirmed they have received a third party report relating to allegations of sexual offences by a man, following recent claims against actor Noel Clarke.

The Met Police said they had received a report on 21 April and officers were assessing the information but there was currently no investigation.

It comes after 20 women accused Clarke of sexual harassment and bullying.

He has "vehemently" denied any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing.

The Met Police said in a statement: "On Wednesday, 21 April, police received a third party report relating to allegations of sexual offences allegedly committed by a male over a period of time."

On Thursday the Guardian reported allegations of harassment and bullying from women who knew Clarke in a professional capacity.

The following day Clarke said he was "deeply sorry" for some of his actions and would seek professional help.

However, he "vehemently" denied any sexual misconduct or criminal wrongdoing.

"Recent reports however have made it clear to me that some of my actions have affected people in ways I did not intend or realise," he said in a statement.

"To those individuals, I am deeply sorry. I will be seeking professional help to educate myself and change for the better."

ITV decided not to broadcast Friday's final episode of police drama Viewpoint, in which he stars, as a result of the allegations.

Sky has also "halted" its work with Clarke, including on the fourth series of crime drama Bulletproof.

And he has been suspended by Bafta, almost three weeks after the British film and television academy gave him an award for his outstanding contribution.

Clarke, 45, is known for playing Mickey Smith in Doctor Who from 2005-10, and for his film trilogy Kidulthood, Adulthood and Brotherhood. He is also a writer, director and producer.
