Time’s Up UK has called on the British film and TV industry to establish an independent authority for dealing with sexual misconduct allegations following a growing #MeToo movement in the television business.

The charity, established in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, has also called on intimacy coordinators to become mandatory on UK shoots. It comes after I May Destroy You creator Michaela Coel highlighted their work while accepting her BAFTA TV Award for best actress on Sunday.

Time’s Up UK chair Dame Heather Rabbatts teased the proposals in an interview with Deadline last week, in which she said there must be better standards for dealing with historical sexual misconduct complaints following the claims made by 20 women against Noel Clarke.
