    I hope that the allegations turn out to be totally baseless.

    I really appreciate his concise and dignified responses to the press.

    Police receive calls from ‘a number of people’ in Cliff Richard investigation

    August 16, 2014


    POLICE say they have been contacted by “a number of people” with information following the widespread media coverage of a search of Sir Cliff Richard’s home.

    The singer’s Berkshire penthouse was scoured for five hours yesterday by officers from South Yorkshire and Thames Valley Police as part of an investigation into an alleged sexual assault on a young boy at a religious event in 1985.

    Officers from South Yorkshire and other police forces have received calls with information but it is not yet clear whether any more alleged victims are among those who have made contact.

    “Since the search took place a number of people have contacted the police to provide information and we must acknowledge that the media played a part in that, for which we are grateful,” the force said in a statement.

    Allegations perhaps involve filming? Or they're checking computers etc for anything else dodgy?
