Sir Cliff Richard broke down in court today (13 April) as he told of how his name had been “smeared” all over the world following BBC coverage of a police raid on his home.

An emotional Sir Cliff told the court his reputation had been affected in countries including Holland, Portugal, Hong Kong and Singapore, stating: “Everywhere I have ever been, I felt my name was smeared.

The police didn’t do that, the BBC did.”

He clasped his hands to his face before adding that the journalists involved “felt they were above the law” and “above the Leveson report”.

Bosses say coverage of the search was accurate and in good faith.

“At one point … I actually thought I was going to have a heart attack or stroke.”
