Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski have been expelled from the Oscars organisation, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

The film academy said the board had voted in accordance with its standards of conduct.

The move comes after 80-year-old Cosby was convicted of sexual assault last week and 84-year-old Polanski admitted to having sex with a 13-year-old girl in Los Angeles in 1977.
