The Metropolitan police have confirmed that actor Noel Clarke will not face criminal charges over sexual harassment allegations made last year. 

In April 2021, a report was published in The Guardian that saw 20 women accuse Clarke of a variety of wrongdoings from alleged bullying to sexual harassment and unwanted sexual contact.

Clarke said in a statement at the time that he “vehemently” denied all the allegations.

Now, in an announcement made by Scotland Yard, the Metropolitan police have confirmed that they have dropped their investigation, citing a lack of evidence.

“On Wednesday, 21 April 2021 police received a third party report relating to allegations of sexual offences allegedly committed by a male over a period of time.”

“Following a thorough assessment by specialist detectives it was determined the information would not meet the threshold for a criminal investigation. We have shared our findings with the third party organisation and updated the complainants who subsequently contacted us following the initial report.”

The fallout from the report last year saw broadcaster Sky cancel Clarke’s series Bulletproof. He also had his BAFTA membership revoked. You can read more about this here.
