Jeremy Clarkson decision is 'imminent'

By PA Reporters

The fate of Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson could be decided imminently, according to one of the BBC's senior executives who said the allegations had to be "dealt with in a very serious way".

Clarkson has been left in limbo for two weeks since the BBC announced his suspension following what it described as "a fracas" with producer Oisin Tymon.

Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper said yesterday: "I think if my son or daughter went to a place of work where they were shouted at, abused and someone threw a punch at them I would want there to be an inquiry and for that to be dealt with in a very serious way, and that's what the BBC is currently doing."
