North Yorkshire police may be investigating Jeremy Clarkson assaulting Top Gear producer Oison Tymon over a sandwich, but Oison himself has no desire to press charges, as his lawyer has announced.

Oisin stated, basically, that he only wants to get on with his job at the BBC. Here's the full statement by his lawyer, as printed in the Radio Times.

I have been asked to issue a statement on behalf of my client Oisin Tymon regarding police enquiries in this matter.

Mr Tymon has informed the police that he doesn’t want to press charges. The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends.

Quite simply, Mr Tymon just wishes to return now to the job at the BBC he loves, as soon as possible. Further, the BBC have, in his view, taken action with a view to addressing the issues at hand.

Mr Tymon agrees with the BBC’s stated view that all parties should now be allowed to move on, so far as possible.


It should be noted that innumerable assholes on Twitter have been threatening Oison's life, trying to blame him in some way, while Clarkson himself has said that Oisin should be left alone.

He is awfully gracious. I can not say that I would do the same in his shoes.
