The Top Gear producer Jeremy Clarkson targeted in an off-camera fracas has said he will not press charges against the star.

Oisin Tymon just wants to return to work at he BBC after the "extremely unpleasant" incident and its fallout, his lawyer said.

But Clarkson, who was sacked by the BBC and then reportedly went to a party marking his dismissal, may still not be in the clear.

North Yorkshire police said it was continuing to investigate the brawl which has left the future of the hit TV show in the balance.

Tymon's lawyer Paul Daniels said: "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."

Clarkson was fired after unleashing a tirade at Tymon, reportedly about a meal of steak and chips. Tymon, 36, was left with a bloody lip and swelling during the incident in which it was said that Clarkson had to be restrained by a witness.

Clarkson was dismissed by the BBC's director general Tony Hall, who said "a line has been crossed".
