A Berkshire property belonging to Cliff Richard is being searched by police in relation to an alleged historical sex offence, reports the BBC.
The allegations date back to the 1980s and relate to an underage boy.
He’s out of the country on his summer holiday…
UPDATE: Statement from Cliff:
“For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online. These allegations are completely false. Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen. However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice, except it would appear to the press. I am not presently in the UK but it goes without saying that I will cooperate fully should the police wish to speak to me. Beyond stating that today’s allegations are completely false it would not be appropriate to say anything further until the police investigation is concluded.”
