London:  British police are now investigating sexual assault allegations brought by nine women against US film mogul Harvey Weinstein, according to media reports Saturday.

Scotland Yard confirmed that its "Operation Kaguyak" was investigating 14 separate claims brought by nine women, but it doesn't  identify suspects unless they have been charged.

British media, including the Press Association, reported that the claims relate to the disgraced producer.

The latest claims were reported to police on November 13 by a woman who said she was assaulted in London in 2011, and on a separate occasion outside the UK in 2010. 

The second allegation will be passed to the relevant police force. 

Accusations of sexual assault have continued to pour in since investigations in The New York Times and The New Yorker last year exposed a series of accounts of sexual predation by the film tycoon.

More than 50 women including stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Mira Sorvino have accused 65-year-old Weinstein of sexual abuse and harassment, though he has denied forcing himself on anyone.
