Top Gear script editor was "teeth-grindingly furious" with Clarkson over fracas

A Top Gear script editor has said how furious he was at Jeremy Clarkson for a "fracas" with the show's producer earlier this year.

Richard Porter, who worked on all 22 series, said Clarkson's behaviour was a kick in the teeth for everyone else who worked hard on the show.

"[Jeremy] didn't sit down or even take his jacket off," he claimed in his book, And On That Bombshell: Inside The Madness And Genius Of Top Gear.

"He just told us he'd made a confession to management and that he was sorry to all of us.

"With that he left the office for what would be the very last time."

He added: "I was furious. Properly, knee-jiggingly, teeth-grindingly furious.

"His apology seemed half-hearted and feeble, like a child saying sorry because they know it's what the adults want to hear, rather than a sincere reflection of remorse."

Top Gear tech highlights: McLaren P1 and more

Over its 11 years of existence Top Gear has showcased some of the best and worst in automotive technology.

Last night's episode showed off what Jeremy Clarkson described as a 'game changer' in terms of car tech; the McLaren P1. As such, we figured a look back through the show's car technology highs and lows was in order.

Naturally, most of the lows come in the form of the creations of the Top Gear team. Perhaps the lowest point of all has to be their famous attempt at creating amphibious vehicles. Richard Hammond's floating Vw canal boat barely made it across the start line.

But there have been some successes put together by the crew too. 'Geoff' or the 'Hammerhead Eagle iThrust' was actually a bit of a pre-cursor to BMW's own i3 electric car.

It featured a clever range extender that meant the car could keep going even when
