A police raid at the home of veteran pop star Sir Cliff Richard has been described as inept by a group of MPs.

The home affairs select committee said South Yorkshire Police should not have tried to cut a deal with a BBC reporter who approached them about the story.

The committee's report looked into how the BBC obtained details in advance of the raid in Berkshire on 14th August.

South Yorkshire Police said its actions were well intended but admitted they were "ultimately flawed".

Sir Cliff denies an alleged historical offence of sexual assault at a religious event in Sheffield in 1985.
