Cliff Richard extends his tour as he is ‘confident’ police will drop child sex abuse investigation

Despite the child sex abuse allegation against him, Cliff Richard has extended his forthcoming sell-out tour. It has been reported that Sir Cliff is confident that the investigation against him will be dropped.

The Mail Online reports: Detectives swooped on the 74-year-old’s £3.1million apartment in Berkshire in August amid accusations he sexually assaulted a schoolboy at a Christian rally almost three decades ago.

Police launched a probe after receiving a report that a teenager under the age of 16 was attacked in Sheffield at an event held by American evangelist Billy Graham in 1985.

The singer has strongly denied the allegation and South Yorkshire Police have not pressed any charges.

But despite the allegation, Sir Cliff has added an extra date at the Royal Albert Hall for his 75th birthday tour in October, with concerts in Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield sold out.
