Clarkson was suspended after a “fracas” with a BBC producer
Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson initiated the BBC investigation which prompted his suspension, after he informed BBC bosses of the alleged ‘fracas’.

Producer Oisin Tymon, with whom the altercation took place, is not believed to have filed his own complaint.
Interviews are expected to be held with the star and other parties next week. Top Gear remains off air this weekend.
