Internationally renowned choreographer Liam Scarlett dies aged 35

Scarlett's position with The Royal Ballet ended last year, when the Royal Opera House, which is home to the Royal Ballet Company, said that an independent investigation had concluded.

The artist-in-residence was investigated over claims of sexual misconduct involving students but the investigation concluded there "were no matters to pursue in relation to alleged contact with students of The Royal Ballet School".
