Veteran singer Cliff Richard was interviewed by police in Britain Saturday following a historic sex crime allegation against him, his spokesman said.

Richard, known for hits such as "Living Doll" and "Devil Woman", met officers voluntarily and was not arrested or charged.

The move came after his luxury apartment in Sunningdale, Berkshire, southern England, was last week searched by police investigating the allegation, which involves a boy under 16 and dates back to the 1980s.

The 73-year-old star's spokesman said: "He co-operated fully with officers and answered the questions put to him.

"Other than restating that this allegation is completely false and that he will continue to co-operate fully with the police, it would not be appropriate for Sir Cliff to say anything further at this time."
