According to the Met, a series of reports detailing sexual offenses have been received both within London and in other parts of the country since the exposé was published. These allegations pertain to incidents that occurred in the past.
Specialist support will be provided to the women who have come forward with their accusations. The inquiry is being led by detectives from the Met’s Central Specialist Crime Command, under the direction of Detective Superintendent Andy Furphy.
Detective Superintendent Furphy urged potential victims, regardless of when the incident took place, to contact them. He emphasized the availability of a dedicated team of officers equipped to offer guidance and support. The four women involved in the exposé assert that the sexual assaults occurred between 2006 and 2013.
