Actor Kevin Spacey has been charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men, the Metropolitan Police has said.

He has also been charged with causing a person to engage in penetrative sexual activity without consent.

Spacey, 62, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

The charges relate to five alleged offences that took place in March 2005, August 2008 and April 2013.

The alleged offences took place in London and Gloucestershire.

The victims are all men who are now in their 30s and 40s, the Met Police added.

Spacey had previously said that he would travel to the UK to face the charges, which he is expected to deny.

The Crown Prosecution Service authorised charges against him last month, but Spacey could only be charged once he had travelled to the UK.

In a statement released to Good Morning America after the CPS announcement, Spacey said: “While I am disappointed with their decision to move forward, I will voluntarily appear in the UK as soon as can be arranged and defend myself against these charges, which I am confident will prove my innocence.”
