The BBC says former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson is being sued by his former producer for racial discrimination.

This is the same producer who worked on the car show who was punched and verbally abused by Jeremy Clarkson.


Oisin Tymon was attacked in a row over food at a hotel in March which resulted in Clarkson losing his job.

You can watch the trailer for his last ever show below.

He is suing the presenter and the BBC for racial discrimination and attended a hearing at a London employment tribunal along with lawyers for the BBC and Clarkson.

His representative says the case relates to alleged "Irish insults".

Slater And Gordon law firm confirmed it was representing Mr Tymon.

Clarkson reportedly called his colleague a "lazy, Irish c***" during the confrontation.

Mr Tymon had to drive himself to hospital when he was left with swelling and a split lip but told police at the time that he did not want to press charges.

Clarkson's actions were the subject of an internal inquiry at the BBC which concluded that he had launched a "unprovoked verbal and physical attack".

A statement from the BBC said: "We will be responding to this claim but will not be commenting further at this time."

Clarkson's co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May left the BBC and the trio are currently filming a new motor show for Amazon Prime to be broadcast next year.

It is thought Mr Tymon is still a BBC employee but it is not known what he is currently working on.
