Jeremy Clarkson to be sued for racial discrimination
Clarkson and BBC being sued for racial discrimination
Jeremy Clarkson is being sued for racial discrimination by the man he punched.
Clarkson was sacked by the BBC earlier this year after getting into an argument over food with his Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon.
During the incident - which saw Clarkson rant at Tymon for 20 minutes - Clarkson punched his producer and called him "lazy" and "Irish".
Lawyers for Clarkson, The BBC and Tymon have met in London, the paper reports.
The meeting was about the "verbal abuse" Tymon received from Clarkson.
A BBC spokeswoman said: "We will be responding to this claim but will not be commenting further at this time."
Clarkson has signed a deal with Amazon Prime for a new show since leaving Top Gear and the BBC.
