United Kingdom–Reports indicate that Jeremy Clarkson’s contract with BBC will not be renewed at the end of the month since he has been sacked following what was termed as ‘unprovoked’ attack on his producer Oisin Tymon. The sack decision of the largely famous presenter on the BBC’s “Top Gear” was concluded after BBC concluded its investigations into the unprovoked verbal and physical attack.
However, even after the sack, he is not likely to be off the hook since the police have not finished assessing the allegations to the incident which are contained in the Corporations official report.
BBC indicates that Mr Tymon was subjected to a 30 second physical attack which took place at the Simonstone Hotel in Hawes and only ended at the intervention of a witness. The report further claimed that Mr. Tymon who was left with a split lip after the attack sort treatment at a local hospital where he drove himself to.
However, Clarkson reported himself to BBC management even before Tymon made a formal complain to the police who have since confirmed that they are investigating the matter. “We are liaising with BBC management about the alleged incident where Jeremy Clarkson is involved”. A police spokesman from North Yorkshire said.
“We are however waiting for a detailed report findings from BBC’s internal investigations into the matter for appropriate assessment and action taking on Jeremy hence it would not be good enough for us to comment at this point.” The police spokesman added.
It is still not very clear what will happen to Top Gear after James and Richard Hammond indicated that they were likely to walk out of the show out of solidarity with Clarkson.
“Clarkson’s sacking is a tragedy and three of us are package. As much as BBC’s decision is within the law, the whole incidence has been blown out of proportion”. This was said by May.
BBC’s creative director Alan Yentob however has stated that he would not rule out Clarkson’s return to the BBC in future.
