LONDON (AP) - Individuals at four London-based Premier League clubs are among those being investigated by the city’s police force as part of the escalating sex-abuse scandal in British soccer.

The Metropolitan Police said Tuesday that its investigative team has received 106 separate allegations in five days since opening its inquiry, and that individuals at 30 clubs are connected.

The clubs involved have not been named but four are from the Premier League, which has five London teams - Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham and Crystal Palace.

On Friday, the National Police Chiefs’ Council said 98 clubs from the professional and amateur game across the country have been impacted by the scandal and that 83 potential suspects have been identified.
