The broadcasting watchdog will not be investigating BBC Two's London Spy after a sex scene was shown in the first half of the show.

The new thriller, starring James Bond star Ben Whishaw and Lady Chatterley's Lover star Edward Holcroft, featured a sex scene between their characters.

A warning was issued by the BBC before transmission of the show at 9pm.

An Ofcom spokesman said: " We assessed one complaint about a sex scene in London Spy on BBC Two.

"In our view, the scene was appropriately scheduled after the watershed. We therefore won't be investigating the programme.

"Our broadcasting rules do not discriminate between scenes involving opposite sex and same-sex couples."
