Top Gear shoot sparks fury in Argentina

Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has claimed he was thrown out of Argentina by state officials after being pelted with rocks.

He said in a tweet that "thousands" of locals rounded on the Top Gear team in apparent protest at a number plate which appeared to refer to the 1982 Falklands war.

A Porsche with the registration number H982 FKL is said to have angered locals in Argentina.

The BBC confirmed the show's decision to leave, but denied the offending car was chosen for its number plate.
