Jeremy Clarkson apologises over racist rhyme

BBC Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has issued an apology on Twitter after footage which wasn't broadcast of him appearing to use a racist word was given to a tabloid newspaper.

The Daily Mirror reported that the star used the n-word in a nursery rhyme, although the paper claims it was later edited out of the BBC broadcast.

In his apology, Clarkson said he was "horrified" that it sounded as though he had used it.
