From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 3 July 2018

Prosecutors in New York have announced new criminal charges against the disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein, who was charged with rape and other sexual crimes in May. They include predatory sexual assault and involve a third woman in addition to the two whose complaints brought about the earlier charges. The former movie producer who worked with some of Hollywood's biggest stars has been accused by more than 70 women of sexual misconduct including rape. The allegations triggered the #MeToo movement which demonstrated the prevalence of sexual harassment. Our correspondent in New York is Nick Harper.
