The police reportedly said that evidence in the case in question is being reviewed, and that the victim “has been supported by specifically-trained officers”.
A police investigation has been launched in the UK after a woman alleged that she was raped on the set of the BBC Three cooking show hosted by Stacey Dooley.
According to Evening Standard, the alleged assault on a female "worker on production" occurred last September in London.
"On Sunday 19 September 2021, City of London Police were contacted by another police force, which had received a late report of a rape that took place in September 2021," the City of London Police said in a statement cited by the newspaper. "The evidence in the case is currently being reviewed and the female victim has been supported by specifically-trained officers."
Meanwhile, BBC Studios declared that they have "robust processes in place" to ensure that any of their staff or freelancers "who may have been the victim of a crime are given all the appropriate support needed and that the matter is handled with the utmost seriousness and care."
