BBC Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has issued an apology on Twitter after unbroadcast footage 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.

Mr Clarkson responded to the claim in a video on Twitter saying he loathed the word.
