The police are searching the property of Sir Cliff Richard after receiving an allegation of sexual abuse dating back to the 1980s, involving a boy who was under 16 at the time.
The singer who is currently out of the country issued the following statement:
“For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online. The allegations are completely false.
“Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen.
“However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice, except it would appear to the press.
“I am not presently in the UK but it goes without saying that I will co-operate fully should the police wish to speak to me.
“Beyond stating that today’s allegation is completely false it would not be appropriate to say anything further until the police investigation has concluded.”
A police spokeswoman said, “no one has been arrested and the owner of the property was not present”.
It was only a matter of time…..
