The police raid at the home of Cliff Richard in 2014 was a serious infringement on the privacy of the British singer. That argued his lawyer, Justin Rushbrooke, on the first day of the trial against the BBC, that the raid live on television broadcasts. Richard has a case against the British public broadcaster tightened as images of the invasion were being broadcast. The singer was accused of child abuse but after investigation proved those allegations wrong. Rushbrooke denounced the intrusive way of working of the BBC and requires a very substantial compensation from the British public broadcaster.
