Sir Cliff Richard dissatisfied with how alleged sex abuse saga was handled
Police raided his Sir Cliff Richard’s home following allegations he had abused boys between 1958 & 1983.
LONDON - International pop star Sir Cliff Richard says he's been "hung out like live bait" after waiting almost two years to find out he won't be charged over allegations of historical sex abuse.
News crews filmed live as his British home was raided by police following claims by men that he had abused them as boys.
Now the Crown Prosecution Service says there is insufficient evidence to prosecute.
Richard is the third biggest-selling singles artist in United Kingdom chart history, behind Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
But in August 2014, police raided his home following allegations he had abused boys between 1958 and 1983.
He was never charged but he was named in the media and denied any wrongdoing.
Now, having finally being told police are taking no action against him, he wants a statutory ban on naming anyone until they are charged.
Some Members of Parliament have already lent their support.
