Police have received additional claims against comedian Russell Brand.

Following media reports regarding comedian Russell Brand, the Metropolitan Police say they will look into new complaints of “non-recent” sexual assaults.

The force has received a “number of allegations of sexual offences” in London and elsewhere in the UK, but no arrests have been made, according to the statement.

It comes after a joint investigation by the Sunday Times, The Times, and Channel 4’s Dispatches, in which four women accused Brand of rape and sexual assault.

Brand has refuted the allegations.

Prior to the publication of the charges, the actor and comedian stated that his relationships had “always” been consensual.

“We continue to encourage anyone who believes they may have been a victim of a sexual offence, no matter how long ago it was, to contact us,” said Det Supt Andy Furphy of the Met’s Central Specialist Crime Command.

“We understand it can feel like a difficult step to take and I want to reassure that we have a team of specialist officers available to advise and support.”

Brand stated in an online video broadcast immediately after the Met issued its statement that it was “difficult for me to be objective given the events of the last week, but that is what we must try to do.”

On Friday, he praised his supporters and encouraged them to “question the information that you’ve been presented with.”

He did not explicitly address the allegations in the documentary, but he did make claims about “media corruption and censorship” as well as “deep state and corporate collusion.”
