Actor Kevin Spacey has been questioned by Metropolitan Police detectives about sex assault allegations in the UK.

The Scotland Yard officers travelled to the US to interview the Usual Suspects star under caution in May.

Police refused to identify the name of the man it said was “voluntarily interviewed under caution in America by officers from the Met’s Complex Case Team,”

“He was not arrested,” a spokesperson added. “Inquiries are ongoing.”

The police interview was first reported by American website Variety, which claimed that the allegations related to offences against six different men date to between 1996 and 2013.
