Noel Clarke has quit his TV production company after several women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The Kidulthood actor, 45, has stood down as director of Unstoppable Film and Television Limited and quit as a person of "significant control" in charge of the company.

Clarke has also quit his roles at another company called Crongton Knights, which was set up to manage production of a BBC drama of the same name.

He has also stepped down from the company Something in the Air, which he set up in November last year.

Unstoppable Film and Television was set up by Clarke and Jason Maza in 2015.

The firm had won backing from major TV production company ALL3 Media to fund their ideas for shows.

But in April the pair were suspended and Companies House records show that they stepped down as directors and as "persons of significant control" last week, the Daily Mail reports.

Any productions on the company's books will be transferred to other labels in the ALL3 Group.

A spokesperson for All3 Media told Broadcast magazine: "Noel Clarke has left Unstoppable Film and TV. Jason Maza has also left the company."

The Mirror has contacted a rep for Noel Clarke and is awaiting comment.

Last week, the Mirror revealed that Clarke is facing further allegations from women.

Scotland Yard told us "a number" had come forward to make claims against him.

A Scotland Yard spokesman told the Mirror: "A number of other women have since come forward and informed police of other incidents involving the male.

"All of the incidents are currently being assessed by officers to ascertain if any offences have been committed.

"There is no criminal investigation at this time."

Detectives began looking into Clarke in May after what the Met Police called a "third party report relating to allegations of sexual offences".

Claims about Clarke's behaviour had emerged in April and prompted him to apologise for his actions but vehemently deny sexual misconduct.

He said he was seeking professional help following allegations of harassment and bullying made by 27 women in a Guardian report.

After the allegations came out, Clarke was stripped of his BAFTA and Sky cancelled his series Bulletproof.

In a statement after the claims surfaced, he said: "In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.

"If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.

"I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations."
