Cliff Richard’s Home Searched – Sky Sources

Police are searching Sir Cliff Richard’s home over an alleged sex offence dating back to the 1980s, according to Sky sources.

South Yorkshire Police officers have gained entry to a property in the Sunningdale area of Berkshire.

A search warrant was granted after a historical allegation of a sexual nature was made involving a boy who was under the age of 16 at the time.

No-one has been arrested and the owner of the property was not present, South Yorkshire Police said in a statement.

Sky’s Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt said: “It is a property believed to be owned by Sir Cliff Richard.

“He is not thought to be in the UK at the moment – last seen a week ago in Portugal, where he held a concert at his wine estate.”
