British music veteran Sir Cliff Richard was interviewed by police on Saturday as part of an investigation into a sexual abuse allegation.
The singer hit headlines earlier this month when his home in Berkshire, England was raided by officers probing a claim that a boy under the age of 16 was attacked in 1985.
Richard, who vehemently denies the allegation, voluntarily met with officers of South Yorkshire Police on Saturday and was questioned under caution.
A spokesman for the star says, “Today Sir Cliff Richard voluntarily met with and was interviewed by members of South Yorkshire Police. He was not arrested or charged. He co-operated fully with officers and answered the questions put to him. Other than restating that this allegation is 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.”
A police representative adds, “The man was interviewed under caution but was not arrested. He entered South Yorkshire Police premises by arrangement.”
