The CPS confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that it had authorised the Metropolitan Police to charge Weinstein with two counts of indecent assault against a woman in London in August 1996.

Rosemary Ainslie, head of the CPS Special Crime Division, said: “Charges have been authorised against Harvey Weinstein, 70, following a review of the evidence gathered by the Metropolitan Police in its investigation.
