Harvey Weinstein is expected to turn himself in to Police in New York to face charges of sexual assault and harrassment from dozens of women. 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. This comes on the same day actor Morgan Freeman is apologising for making women feel "uneasy" after eight women say he sexually harassed them or made inappropriate remarks. US film star Morgan Freeman has apologised following allegations of sexual misconduct made by eight women and several others.
