Clarkson won't face police action in connection with "fracas" with producer Oisin Tymon

Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson will not be facing police action over allegedly punching a producer.

The former 'Top Gear' presenter was sacked from the popular BBC show last month after being involved in a "fracas" with producer Oisin Tymon - who he's alleged to have punched in an argument over a steak - and although his victim said he would not be pressing charges, the authorities claimed they still had to make "routine enquiries".

However, North Yorkshire Police have now confirmed they've completed all the necessary interviews and will "not be pursuing this matter any further".

Mr. Tymon had to take himself to A&E after being left with a split lip following his assault by the 54-year-old star and the BBC's director general Tony Hall claimed he'd been left with "no choice" but to fire the controversial presenter.

The police released a statement on their website, saying: "North Yorkshire Police takes a thorough and victim-led approach to all investigations.

"Last week, the person at the centre of the incident, Mr. Tymon, said that he did not wish the police to take action on his behalf. However, at that point we still needed to speak to some members of the public who were present at the time of the incident, who had been affected by the event, and whose views also needed to be considered.

"Now that all the interviews are complete, we have properly established that there is no need for further police action."
