The BBC coverage of the police raid on Sir Cliff Richard's penthouse apartment was "disproportionate" the chief constable of South Yorkshire Police has said.
"The coverage was disproportionate and made our actions look heavy-handed and intrusive. I do regret that," David Crompton told the Home Affairs Select Committee.
The BBC has already confirmed that the leak about the inquiry did not come from South Yorkshire Police.
South Yorkshire Police has already complained to the BBC about its coverage of the search of Sir Cliff's Berkshire penthouse last month, claiming that an analysis piece posted on the broadcaster's website was an attempt to distance itself from what had happened.
