An Oxfordshire comedian has been questioned for a second time by detectives investigating allegations of sexual offences against him.

Russell Brand, who lives in the Henley area, was interviewed under caution last week over six allegations, following questioning in November over three other claims.

The Metropolitan Police did not identify Brand, 48, but said in a statement: “A man in his 40s attended a police station in South London for a second time on Thursday, December 14.

“He was interviewed under caution by detectives in relation to a further six, non-recent, sexual offences.”

In September, the comedian was accused of rape, assault and emotional abuse between 2006 and 2013, following a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches.

Brand has strongly denied the claims.

The allegations are said to have taken place during the height of Brand’s fame when he was working for the BBC, Channel 4 and starring in Hollywood films.

He denies the claims, which include allegations of controlling, abusive and predatory behaviour.

The claims span between 2006 and 2013, when he was working for Channel 4 on Big Brother spin-off shows Efourum and Big Brother’s Big Mouth.
