"Jeremy Clarkson approached BBC bosses about 'catering foul up'"

From the BBC:

Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson initiated the BBC investigation which prompted his suspension, after he informed BBC bosses of the alleged "catering foul up".

BBC News understands that the star phoned BBC head of television, Danny Cohen, to report the lack of hot food. Producer Oisin Tymon, with whom the altercation took place, is not believed to have filed his own written report.

Interviews are expected to be held with the star and other parties next week, and the show has been taken off-air. Clarkson has expressed dissatisfaction with the catering, which his co-presenter James May labelled "a bit of a fuck-up".

It clearly states that food is served up to 2045 in that brasserie at Simonsstowe hall. If you turn up at 10 pm you are going to get the "cold shoulder" literally.

They got late because he was drinking and they couldnt get him to move. It is a royal fuck up but then again if you turn up late for dinner what do you expect. A half hour rant. I once went to dinner at a Michael Caines restaurant, in Exeter, the food was late and by the time we'd finished we were all hungry as hell ( because there wasnt much of it) ( the drug rep took us out) and the kitchen was shut down. I was horrified. But this is what Britain is like these days.

Jeremy has unwittingly raised the problem of hotels shutting down their kitchens at night because the whole economy is stretched to breaking point and it was only a matter of time before something like this happened.
