    Sir Cliff Richard police inquiry 'significantly expanded'

    An historical sex offence inquiry into singer Sir Cliff Richard has "increased significantly in size" and involves "more than one allegation", police say.

    The expansion of the investigation meant no date could be given for when it would be concluded, South Yorkshire Police's chief constable said.

    It comes after officers raided Sir Cliff's Berkshire home last August.

    Sir Cliff, 74, said he had no idea where the "absurd and untrue" allegations against him come from.

    "The police have not disclosed details to me," he said in a statement.

    "I have never, in my life, assaulted anyone and I remain confident that the truth will prevail. I have cooperated fully with the police, and will, of course, continue to do so."

    Sir Cliff has been interviewed about an allegation of a sex crime, but was not arrested or charged.

    The BBC understands the original allegation relates to an alleged assault at an event featuring US preacher Billy Graham at Bramall Lane in Sheffield in 1985.

    'As swiftly as possible'
    In a letter dated 10 February to Labour MP Keith Vaz, chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, Chief Constable David Crompton said his force was in regular contact with Sir Cliff's lawyers.

    South Yorkshire Police letter
    The details come in a letter from the chief constable of South Yorkshire to Labour MP Keith Vaz
    That involved a "verbal update about once a fortnight", he said.

    "This is an investigation which has increased significantly in size since its inception. Sir Cliff Richard's lawyers are aware that there is more than one allegation," he said in the letter.

    He added: "It would be premature and potentially misleading to predict a likely date when it will be concluded, however, we are progressing as swiftly as possible."

    Parts of the letter were blacked out before it was released.

    A spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it had not been presented with a file for a charging decision.

    "The CPS is providing early investigative advice in relation to allegations of sexual offences committed by a 74-year-old man, interviewed by police in August 2014," it said in a statement.

    Officers raided Sir Cliff's Berkshire home on 14 August, last year
    "The allegations remain under investigation by South Yorkshire Police."

    It comes after an independent report concluded that police should not have released "highly confidential" details to the BBC about the planned search of Sir Cliff Richard's home.

    A deal over the details was made when a BBC reporter told the force he knew they were investigating the star.

    The report looked into a subsequent agreement between South Yorkshire Police and the BBC, which led to the raid being broadcast live.

    South Yorkshire Police had "interfered with the star's privacy" by telling the broadcaster about the raid, the report said.

    A statement from Sir Cliff's lawyers at the time said the coverage caused "immeasurable harm" to the star.

    A BBC spokesman said the Home Affairs committee had "already endorsed the way the BBC handled this story."

    South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Dr Alan Billings, said six recommendations in the report "will be implemented".

    I was a fan of Cliff as a kid. Was fond of his soft voice and played my brother's yellow vinyl singles again and again. Even forced my sister to take me to the cinema for a Cliff Movie

    Can't ever repay her for that sacrifice and she agrees with me on that one


    Let's hope the truth of Cliff's life in The Shadows will come out

    Maybe he's innocent? I'd hate to have the police show up and search my home over something that I'm accused of doing in 1985. How can you defend yourself against something like that?

    Anyone with money is an attractive target of accusation since a civil lawsuit will inevitably follow the criminal accusation.

    I first was exposed to Cliff Richard while living in England where my father was an exchange student with the RAF. His music back then was much different than with the Stones, but I still liked it. He was a heart throb back then and my sister was gaga over him as was every girl in England. It is no secret he bedded many women on his travels and lived a life most of us dream about.

    Time will tell if these allegations are true or false. I am putting my money on false since any celebrity is a huge target for this type of allegation. Why has it taken so long for these allegations to surface? Silly IMO.

    Cliff is a nonce. Pure and simple. The Elm Guest list that he is named on contains lots of other nonces as well, and still none of those are being investigated.

    The first date I had was to see the cliff in the young ones, and always thought of cliff as being next to God A real gent, no scandal not a wiff of impropriety, so I would be mortified if there was a skeleton in the closet.

    You sound like my 70 yr old aunty.

    He's a pedophile - part of the same ring as Jimmy S. What the investigation and media is not talking about though is that like Jimmy, he is not just a Pedo, but he was a procurer of children for the ring to rape and murder. A procurer. He, Jimmy etc use their fame that was very popular with the youth to get young children into their pedo ring. Its all out there, but so is the names of the end users of this going from the most senior ranks in police, judiciary, royalty, government, media etc

    but cliffs definition of assault may be different from others, if he indeed had relations with an under 16 year old boy ,at a time when i think the age of consent was 21 for fag 'sex' it is indeed assault .

    Strange that you could have a fag in your mouth at 16 but not one up your arse til you're 21?

    Go seek and yea shall find. I bet you were saying that you needed proof that Jimmy was a pedo as well before he died and the flood gates opened in the moronstream media.

    Having multiple sources will help the investigation. However, it will take a huge weight of evidence to nail Cliff.

    I note that it is basically the nasties - Glitter and Clifford who get found guilty on testimony alone. Nice guys - eg Ken Barlow, can get away with hearsay. Rolf - previous nice guy, was denying every word said against him, and I think would have been exonerated had his incriminating letter of confession not emerged

    I liked the suit Cliff wore at the Queen's jubilee concert. I wonder if it's for sale?

    TBF Psuedo, if you make such a suggestion, linking him to Saville the onus is with you to provide at least a link proving the connection, along with your reference to other nasy practices?
    As far as I am aware the current accusations amount to an assault, unless you have evidence of more serious charges?

    Has Cliff sold his house yet? He said he was going to sell it after the police turned up there. He felt 'violated'.

    Pathetic sop to the PC brigade that post was Chass.

    Fucking assault?



    You'd rather wait for him to be dead before being outed to save your anguish or something?

    Gonna lock her up in a trunk.... got myself a CRYING...

    You'll never look at Pedo Richards lyrics the same way again once you go digging.

    Some dodgy links on that google Page Pseuds, facebook, you tube. Plenty of rumours and innuendo from conspiracy theorists. Nothing concrete or credible then, just random no mark idiots having a go on the internet.

    Nothing PC about it. I just find pointless and spiteful gossip worthless. He may or may not be guilty, but idiots with some kind of beef about him or their own sad personal lives should be barred from the web.
    Filling valuable bandwidth with this kind of petty nonsense should be beneath anyone with half a brain.
    FFS there's not even a garbage licentious 'look at me' report from the Daily Mail to crow over.
