Former Deputy Commons Speaker Nigel Evans, who was acquitted of a series of sexual assault charges earlier this year, is calling for anonymity of individuals involved in police investigations unless they are convicted, following police searches at the home of Cliff Richard.
Yesterday, police searched a property in Berkshire owned by Sir Cliff in relation to an historical sexual offence allegation.
The performer said in a statement that the allegations were "completely false" and added he would co-operate fully with the investigation.
