Clarkson fuming after fox kills 34 of his hens


FORMER Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson was fuming afer a fox killed 34 of his hens at his Cotswolds farm.

The 61-year-old broadcaste­r opened Diddly Squat Farm Shop on his country estate in Chadlingto­n last year – a month before the first national lockdown was announced.

He has already suffered setbacks after having to reapply for planning permission for certain aspects of the shop, including the roof, when he used the wrong type of material.

But now, Clarkson, pictured, has been hit with another disappoint­ment after revealing yesterday 34 of his hens were killed by one fox.

It is understood to have happened at his farm.

He took to his Twitter to post to his 7.3 million followers: “A fox has just killed 34 of my hens.”

Clarkson did not provide any more context to the hen house massacre.
