Sir Cliff Richard received damages from South Yorkshire Police following a raid on his house (PA)

South Yorkshire Police agreed to pay Sir Cliff Richard £400,000 after settling a claim he brought against the force, Mr Justice Mann has heard.

The singer had initially sued the BBC and South Yorkshire Police after complaining about coverage of the raid, which followed a sexual assault allegation.

But Mr Justice Mann was in May 2017 told how that dispute had been settled after the force agreed to pay the singer “substantial” damages.

The judge was later given the figure by lawyers representing the force at the trial.
