BBC’s fury at £900k pre-action legal costs of Sir Cliff Richard
Lawyers for the BBC have recorded their disapproval at the ‘grossly unreasonable’ costs incurred so far by Sir Cliff Richard in his legal action against the broadcaster.
The singer is suing the BBC over reports naming him as a suspected sex offender and is claiming damages.
The total pre-action legal bill is estimated to come to almost £900,000 plus VAT.
