Police Investigation Into Sir Cliff Richard Expands

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

The police investigation into alleged sex attacks on children by Cliff Richard has “expanded” according to  South Yorkshire Police chief constable David Crompton.

More than one allegation has emerged which has led the police to “increase significantly in size” their investigation.

Sir Richard was interviewed by detectives following a police raid. He was not arrested or charged.

Daily Record reports:

South Yorkshire Police chief constable David Crompton said the ‘expanding nature’ of the investigation meant he could not give a date when it would be concluded.

In a letter to Keith Vaz, chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, Mr Crompton said the force was in regular contact with Sir Cliff’s lawyers.

A statement released by Sir Cliff tonight said: “I have no idea where these absurd and untrue allegations come from.

“The police have not disclosed details to me. I have never, in my life, assaulted anyone and I remain confident that the truth will prevail. I have co-operated fully with the police, and will, of course, continue to do so.
