Sir Cliff Richard has won his privacy case against the BBC over its coverage of a police raid on his home.

High Court judge Mr Justice Mann awarded an initial £210,000 in damages.

The singer claimed the BBC's reporting of the 2014 raid, which was part of an investigation into historical child sex allegations, was a "serious invasion" of privacy.

Sir Cliff was never arrested or charged over the allegations, which dated back to 1985.

The judge said the BBC had infringed Sir Cliff's privacy rights in a "serious" and "sensationalist" way.

What chance does the average punter have against wrongful accusation I'd find it a bit tight to raise that sort of cash for defence. :roll:
