Sir Cliff Richard released a statement today in relation to the search of his property in Berkshire by South Yorkshire Police:
“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…..”
But all the major news networks are saying that:
“Sky News understands the accusation against Sir Cliff comes from an event held by American evangelist preacher Billy Graham in Sheffield in 1985.”
So why is Sir Cliff talking about online rumours, that he has been aware of for months, when the Police are investigating a fresh and individual allegation that has not been circulating online until today?
The online rumours all relate to him allegedly visiting the Paedophile-run Elm guest house in the early 1980’s using the pseudonym “Kitty”.
So what is Sir Cliff actually denying?
