Elmo actor Kevin Clash resigns amid new child sex accusation

ELMO puppeteer Kevin Clash has resigned from Sesame Street in the wake of another allegation that he had sex with an under-aged youth.

In its statement, Sesame Workshop said "the controversy surrounding Kevin's personal life has become a distraction that none of us want," leading Clash to conclude "that he can no longer be effective in his job".

"This is a sad day for Sesame Street," the statement said.

In a statement of his own, Clash said "personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer.

"I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately."
