The public service broadcaster conducted their own internal investigation into the ‘fracas’ in which Top Gear producer Tymon was subject to a 30 second unprovoked attack from the Doncaster born presenter at a North Yorkshire luxury hotel, Clarkson was apparently angered at being offered a plate of cold meats instead of steak and chips.
North Yorkshire Police today confirmed they had asked the BBC for a copy of the report into the incident, saying it would take action where necessary.
Both of Clarkson’s co-hosts, James May and Richard Hammond, were disappointed at their colleague’s exit and it seems they may look to leave Top Gear.
Richard Hammond tweeted, “Gutted at such a sad end to an era. We’re all three of us idiots in our different ways but it’s been an incredible ride together.”
Now it appears the police are likely to be involved, with a North Yorkshire Police spokesperson saying, “North Yorkshire Police is liaising with the BBC regarding the alleged incident in North Yorkshire involving Jeremy Clarkson.
“We have asked the BBC for the report which details the findings of their internal investigation into the matter.
“The information will be assessed appropriately and action will be taken by North Yorkshire Police where necessary.
“It would not be appropriate for North Yorkshire Police to comment further at this time.”
