Bafta Suspends Actor 

Noel ClarkeNoel Clarke







Bafta has suspended actor Noel Clarke following newspaper allegations of sexual harassment, weeks after he received one of its top awards.

The Kidulthood, Bulletproof and Doctor Who actor was presented with the outstanding British contribution to cinema award on 10 April. 

Clarke has said he "vehemently" denies "any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing". 

In a statement he said he intended to "defend myself against these false allegations", adding: "In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me. 

"If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise." 

The Guardian says it has spoken to 20 women who made the allegations, all of whom knew Clarke in a professional capacity. 

Bafta said it was suspending his membership and the recently awarded honour "immediately and until further notice".
