The search of a Berkshire property said to belong to Sir Cliff Richard is not related to Operation Yewtree, police have confirmed to ITV News.
South Yorkshire Police said the property was being searched in relation to "an allegation of a sexual nature dating back to the 1980s involving a boy who was under the age of 16 at the time."
Operation Yewtree was launched in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal.
