It was announced today that the BBC would not be renewing Jeremy Clarkson's contract after the 'fracas' we all heard so much about that took place earlier on in the month.

The incident saw the Top Gear presenter involved in a bust up with a long term producer on the show, Irish man Oisin Tymon.

Following on from the announcement by the BBC today, the producer has also released a statement;

"I respect Lord Hall’s detailed findings and I am grateful to the BBCfor their thorough and swift investigation into this very regrettable incident, against a background of intense media interest and speculation.

"I’ve worked on Top Gear for almost a decade, a programme I love.

"Over that time Jeremy and I had a positive and successful working relationship, making some landmark projects together. He is a unique talent and I am well aware that many will be sorry his involvement in the show should end in this way."

While his lawyer Paul Daniels (not the magician) added; “This last month has been a nightmare for Oisin, his friends and his family. Through absolutely no fault of his own he found himself at the centre of a massive news story, but despite that he has conducted himself with dignity, restraint and balance.

“He now simply wishes to return to the job he loves at the BBC. He does not intend to make any further media comment and kindly asks that his privacy is respected.

“More generally, this is an important reminder that UK law protects all staff who face bullying, discrimination or violence at work, and all employers are required to protect their staff from such behaviour.”
