Asked about the accusations against the Duke of York on LBC, the head of the Metropolitan Police said that a review into the Jeffrey Epstein allegations is under way but no investigation is taking place.
Dame Cressida Dick said she did not want to talk about individuals but insisted that “no one is above the law” when discussing the allegations against Prince Andrew.
The Met have carried out two previous reviews into allegations made by six women, who came forward accusing Ghislaine Maxwell and the late financier, Jeffrey Epstein, of serious sexual assault in the UK in the 1990s and 2000s.
In 2016 Scotland Yard looked into claims by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who alleged she had been trafficked to London and pressured by Epstein and Ms Maxwell into having sexual relations with Prince Andrew.
The Duke of York, who strenuously denies allegations brought against him, is now being sued by Ms Giuffre for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was underage.
Ms Giuffre, a victim of Jeffrey Epstein, filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew in New York on Monday.
