UK Police Search Singer Cliff Richard's House Over Sex Claim

LONDON (AP) — British police said Thursday they are searching a house believed to belong to veteran singer Cliff Richard in connection with sexual allegations dating back to the 1980s.

South Yorkshire Police said eight officers gained entry to the house in Berkshire, west of London, after receiving an allegation of a sexual nature “involving a boy who was under the age of 16 at the time.”

British police do not name people who have not been charged. When asked about reports on the BBC that the house belonged to Richard, a spokeswoman referred The Associated Press to a statement issued Thursday confirming a Berkshire house was searched. The statement said the owner was believed out of the country, and that no one has been arrested.

Richard, 73, is one of Britain’s best-known musicians, and has enjoyed a successful career with numerous chart-topping hits spanning more than five decades.
