Clarkson staff ‘use bodycams’


TEENAGE workers at Jeremy Clarkson’s farm have to wear bodycams to record abuse directed at them by angry locals over the influx of visitors, a planning appeal heard.

A planning inspector is considerin­g proposals by the 62-yearold former Top Gear presenter, pictured, to extend the car park at Diddly Squat farm so it can accommodat­e 70 vehicles.

West Oxfordshir­e District Council rejected the plans on the grounds that it would encourage more visitors to the farm – between Chadlingto­n and Chipping Norton – adding to traffic problems. Clarkson appealed against the decision.

Annabel Gray, 32, who works on a catering trailer at Clarkson’s farm, told the planning inspectora­te hearing – taking place at the council offices – that workers as young as 16 on the farm have had to ‘wear body cameras’ as a precaution after they were subjected to ‘abuse’ by villagers.
