Top Gear cleared in controversial car number plate row
Complaints about the use of a controversial number plate that appeared to refer to the Falklands conflict on Top Gear's Patagonia special have been rejected by the BBC Trust.
The show starring Jeremy Clakson sparked a diplomatic incident in Argentina when its crew fled the country over the use of a Porsche with the registration number H982 FKL.
The programme went on to form part of the BBC's Christmas schedule. Some complained they did not believe the car number plate was a randomly allocated number, but was a deliberate reference to the Falklands War.
They said the decision to air the programme as a "Christmas Special" was particularly offensive.
