Sir Cliff breaks down in tears as judge awards him £210k and rules BBC infringed his privacy in 'serious and sensationalist way' with coverage of police raid on home that left him 'forever tainted'

  • BBC broadcast live from outside star's home during police raid in August 2014

  • Star always denied sex assault claims and was later told he wouldn't face action

  • He sued the police and the BBC for breaching his privacy in reporting the case

  • A judge today found BBC had breached star's rights and awarded £210,000

  • Judge found case was aggravated by BBC nominating story for a 'scoop' award

  • BBC could appeal the judgment, which they said could affect press freedom

Good! He has been treated very badly, and it affected him greatly. The police also have a lot to answer for.

I think the whole ethos of presuming someone is guilty before being proven is wrong. All this witch hunt type shit is dreadful. It's driven people to suicide.
