Officers swooped on Sir Cliff Richard's Berkshire home as part of investigations into an alleged sexual offence which took place during the 80s.
It is claimed the act took place at a rally in 1985 led by American Evangelist Billy Graham, and involved a boy under the age of 16.
Sir Cliff has dismissed the allegation as "completely false", and said he would cooperate fully with the police investigation.
ITV News correspondent Paul Davies has the full story.
