BBC apologises for Jeremy Clarkson comments

The presenters of The One Show on BBC One have apologised for Jeremy Clarkson's comments about deaths on the railways.

Mr Clarkson, who was a guest on the One Show, told the programme that he was annoyed by delays caused when a passenger jumps under a train.

One Show presenter Matt Baker told viewers at the end of Wednesday night's edition of The One Show that he was "seriously sorry" if anyone had been upset by the comments.

He said they had been exaggerated for comic effect.
