Noel Clarke’s Bafta membership has been suspended following misconduct allegations
A statement said: ‘In light of the allegations of serious misconduct regarding Noel Clarke in The Guardian, Bafta has taken the decision to suspend his membership and the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award immediately and until further notice.’
Last month, Bafta announced it was honouring Clarke for outstanding British contribution to cinema at this year’s awards.
Commenting on the honour at the time, Clarke said: ‘Thank you Bafta for this acknowledgment and recognition of my work over the past two decades.
‘I will endeavour to continue to make ground-breaking work and open doors for underrepresented people that may not often get a chance.’
