Sir Cliff Richard police raid inept say MPs

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 14 August.

Daniel Sandford reports.
