Police investigating the claims made against the 74-year-old singer are expected to hand evidence files to prosecutors within a fortnight, reports the Sunday Mirror.

It comes over a year after police raided Cliff’s Berkshire home in August 2014, after they responded to a complaint to the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Yewtree.

A spokesman for the CPS said: “We haven’t yet received a file. When we do, we will confirm it.”

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The investigation is ongoing.”
