Police are today searching a Berkshire property belonging to Sir Cliff Richard in relation to an alleged historical sex offence.
Police were seen taking a number of items from the property in the Sunningdale area for further investigation. No arrests have been made.
A police spokesman said the allegation involved a boy under 16 years of age and dated from the 1980s in the South Yorkshire area.
He said: 'Police have gained entry to a property in the Sunningdale area of Berkshire.
'Officers are currently searching the property.
'A search warrant was granted after police received an allegation of a sexual nature dating back to the 1980s involving a boy who was under the age of 16 at the time.
'No one has been arrested and the owner of the property was not present.'
According to the Needleblog :
” I can confirm that documents seized under warrant by members of the Operation Fairbank police investigation team (now Operation Fernbridge) as evidence in the Elm Guest House paedophile scandal (1979-1982) allege that Cliff Richard, Pop Star and Actor, was a regular visitor to the guest house where the abuse of young boys trafficked in from local care homes took place.
As such Cliff Richard is likely to be a ‘person of interest’ to the police in regards to the Operation Fernbridge paedophile investigation.”
A list has appeared on the internet claiming to show the names of VIPs and politicians who visited Elm Guest House.
The list details Cliff Richard (who was allegedly known as Kitty) as being a regular at the house of filth.

Cliff Richard, Operation Fernbridge, Operation Yewtree, Elm Guest House and the Kitty connection
Rumours abound that holier-than-thou Cliff Richard is in someway linked to police investigations of the debauched Elm Guest House.
Rumours abound that holier-than-thou Cliff Richard is also linked to the Jimmy Savile Operation Yewtree investigations.
Are these rumours mindless gossip or is there more to Cliff than meets the eye?
“Operation Fairbank was a secretive Met operation investigating historical abuse allegations, first raised by brave MP Geoffrey Dickens.
The allegations centered around claims that politicians and VIPs were involved in a child abuse ring at the Elm Guest House in Richmond.
