There have been reports that the incident that led to Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson being suspended by the BBC took place at a hotel in North Yorkshire.

Initially it had been reported that 'fracas' between the 54-year-old presenter and programme producer Oisin Tymon took place after filming in Newcastle.

However, a spokeswoman for Northumbria Police said: "It does not appear to have been reported to us and we are not aware of any incident."

It now turns out that the presenters and the crew are believed to have been staying at Simonstone Hall Hotel in Hawes, North Yorkshire, at the time of the incident.

A spokesman for the 15th century hotel confirmed that Top Gear staff stayed in the 18-bedroom property from March 3 to 5.

He added that Clarkson, Hammond and May only stayed for one night, on March 4.

But the spokesman would not confirm whether the alleged incident took place there.
