PM brands Clarkson comments 'silly'

David Cameron has said that his friend Jeremy Clarkson's call for strikers to be shot was "silly".

The Prime Minister said he was sure the Top Gear presenter had not meant to make the comments, which have sparked widespread outrage.

Mr Clarkson said public sector workers should be gunned down in front of their families, as he appeared on the BBC's One Show.

Speaking on ITV's This Morning programme, Mr Cameron said: "It was obviously a silly thing to say and I am sure he didn't mean that.

"I didn't see the remark but I'm sure... it's a silly thing to say."
