First Top Gear Live Shows Postponed

The first live shows of a Top Gear arena show have been postponed, the BBC has confirmed.

The dates, which were to be held in Norway next week, are expected to be rescheduled for later this year.

It is understood that the BBC have postponed the live shows as an investigation into an alleged altercation between presenter Jeremy Clarkson and a producer from the show is yet to be concluded.

Currently, all other scheduled Top Gear Live events will go ahead as planned.
