Jeremy Clarkson will not face any legal action, North Yorkshire Police have confirmed.

In a statement released on Tuesday morning, the force said that it had "completed its routine enquiries following the incident at Hawes involving Mr Jeremy Clarkson and we will not be pursuing this matter any further."

Clarkson was dismissed by the BBC as presenter of flagship motoring programme Top Gear after punching producer Oisin Tymon at a luxury hotel near the North Yorkshire Dales.


North Yorkshire Police added that it "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, the force had to interview witnesses in order to close the matter.
