Clarkson Not Charged For Battery : News

Jeremy Clarkson will face no further police action over his attack on a Top Gear producer at a hotel, North Yorkshire Police have said.

The force said it had "completed its routine inquiries" in to the incident and would "not be pursuing this matter any further".

It said: "North Yorkshire Police has now completed its routine enquiries following the incident at Hawes involving Mr Jeremy Clarkson, and we will not be pursuing this matter any further.

"North Yorkshire Police takes a thorough and victim-led approach to all investigations.

"Last week, the person at the centre of the incident, Mr Tymon, said that he did not wish the police to take action on his behalf.

"However, at that point we still needed to speak to some members of the public who were present at the time of the incident, who had been affected by the event, and whose views also needed to be considered.

"Now that all the interviews are complete, we have properly established that there is no need for further police action."

Clarkson, 54, was sacked as Top Gear presenter last month after an internal BBC investigation concluded that he had physically assaulted producer, Oisin Tymon, during an incident at a hotel in North Yorkshire.

The attack, which was initially described as a 'fracas' by the Corporation, took place after the presenter was told there was no hot food available following a day of filming.

North Yorkshire Police confirmed they were investigating whether any criminal offence had taken place and requested a copy of the BBC's report into the incident.

The report revealed that Clarkson launched a 30 second physical attack on My Tymon, which only ended when a witness intervened.

The findings went on to claim that the producer sustained a split lip and drove himself to a local hospital for treatment.

However Mr Tymon did complain to the police and Clarkson later reported himself to BBC management over the incident.
