Cliff Richard interviewed by police over 1980s sex claim


Sir Cliff Richard has been interviewed by South Yorkshire Police after meeting officers voluntarily, a spokesman for the star said.

The entertainer was interviewed under caution last year by detectives investigating a claim of a sex crime involving a young boy in the 1980s, but was not arrested or charged.

A spokesman said the singer spoke to officers this week.

He said: "Sir Cliff Richard voluntarily met with and was interviewed by members of South Yorkshire Police.

"He was not arrested or charged, nor has he ever been.

"He co-operated fully with officers and answered the questions put to him.

"Other than restating that the allegations are completely false and that he will continue to co-operate fully with the police, it would not be appropriate for Sir Cliff to say anything further at this time."
