Police are searching a Berkshire property belonging to Sir Cliff Richard in relation to an alleged historical sex offence.
No arrests have been made and Sir Cliff is not at the property.
A police spokesman said the allegation involved a boy under 16 and dated from the 1980s in the South Yorkshire area.
The search is not connected to Operation Yewtree, police said, but officers from that operation have been notified.
The singer, born Harry Webb, is one of the most successful British musicians of all time.
He has sold 21.5 million singles - more than any other male British artist - and is the only performer to have had at least one UK top five album in
each of the last seven decades.
