Revealed: Assault, robbery and blackmail among crimes in parliament Crimes reported in parliament have soared by nearly 50% in the last two years, with offences including assault, robbery, blackmail and drug possession, Sky News can reveal. A total of 578 crimes were reported on the parliamentary estate in Westminster between 2016 and 2018, according to figures released by the Metropolitan Police under the Freedom of Information Act. They included a sharp rise in threatening letters being received amid fears MPs are being increasingly targeted due to their beliefs on Brexit.

It was not immediately clear what the focus of the interview was or where it took place.

Scotland Yard is carrying out an ongoing investigation into six allegations of sexual assault against Spacey in cases ranging from 1996 until 2013. Spacey has not been charged with any offense.
