The decision has been made to fire Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson after he made an unprovoked physical and verbal attack on a Top Gear producer.

Clarkson was suspended on 10 March following the incident until a decision regarding his future on Top Gear was decided.

The altercation took place in a Yorkshire Hotel and was said to have occurred because no hot food was provided after a day’s filming.

The physical attack resulted in swelling and bleeding to the producer’s lip, luckily a witness stepped in at this point.

The producer did not file a formal complaint and it is understood Clarkson reported himself to BBC bosses following the incident.

The decision caused an outpouring of support for Clarkson from Top Gear fans, with more than a million people signing an online petition to give him his job back.

However BBC bosses said there cannot be one rule for one person and one rule for another just because of their popularity.

They did also acknowledged the extraordinary contribution that Jeremy Clarkson has made to the BBC and will be sad to see him go.

Whether Clarkson’s co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond will remain on the show has yet to be confirmed.
