Top Gear Producer Won't Press Charges

The Top Gear producer who was verbally and physically abused by former presenter Jeremy Clarkson will not press charges.

A statement from Oisin Tymon's lawyer, Paul Daniels, said: "Mr Tymon has informed the police that he doesn't want to press charges.

"The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends.

"Quite simply, Mr Tymon just wishes to return now to the job at the BBC he loves, as soon as possible.

"Further, the BBC have, in his view, taken action with a view to addressing the issues at hand.

"Mr Tymon agrees with the BBC's stated view that all parties should now be allowed to move on, so far as possible."

Mr Clarkson has reportedly called for Mr Tymon to be left alone: "I wish people would leave Ois alone because none of this was his fault."
