The BBC has said normal journalistic practices were followed in its coverage of the search of Sir Cliff Richard's home following a complaint by South Yorkshire Police.
The broadcaster found out about a search of Sir Cliff Richard's home in relation to an alleged historical offence, and cameras and reporters were stationed outside the singer's home as police arrived on Thursday.
The police force accused the broadcaster of breaking its own editorial guidelines, but the BBC insisted "normal journalist practices" were followed.
"A BBC journalist approached South Yorkshire Police with information about the investigation," a BBC spokeswoman said.
"The BBC agreed to follow normal journalistic practice and not to publish a story that might jeopardise a police inquiry."
Jonathan Munro, the BBC's head of newsgathering, said the police force had not been the source of the story, tweeting: "We won't say who, but can confirm it was not South Yorks Police."
