Cliff Richard house raid: Police 'incompetent', say MPs

South Yorkshire Police have been accused of "sheer incompetence" by MPs in the way they dealt with the BBC over a search of Sir Cliff Richard's home.

Police and BBC News were criticised after the corporation was able to send cameras to the pop star's Berkshire home as officers arrived on 14 August.

The Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Keith Vaz, said the BBC had acted "perfectly properly".

Sir Cliff Richard denies an alleged historical offence of sexual assault in Sheffield.
