Scotland Yard are investigating a second sexual assault allegation against Kevin Spacey dating back to 2005.

Scotland Yard has opened another investigation of Kevin Spacey.

Spacey worked as the Old Vic's artistic director from 2004 to 2014.

A statement from the Metropolitan Police revealed that the alleged sexual assault took place in Lambeth, the area where the theatre is located.

While not identifying Spacey directly, it is understood that police are looking into allegations that he sexually assault a man in Lambeth in 2005.

It is not clear whether the investigation launched by Scotland Yard is a result of the Old Vic's report.

The new allegation was made last week, shortly after London's Old Vic theater said it had received 20 complaints of inappropriate behavior by former artistic director Spacey after it appealed to people to come forward with concerns and complaints.

Cavazos alleged that Spacey approached him in "unpleasant encounters" which he said he would have termed "harassment" if he were a woman.

The Old Vic's announcement follows recent allegations of sexual harassment and predatory behaviour made against the double Oscar victor and former House of Cards actor while at the theatre and elsewhere in the entertainment industry.

Alleged victim, Daniel Beal said that Spacey showed him his penis in public when he was 19, before giving him his £5,000 watch to buy his silence. He has denied allegations of assault, but said he is now seeking "evaluation and treatment" of his behavior.

The London theatre released the conclusion following its investigation into allegations concerning the House of Cards star.
