- The Top Gear team was forced to flee Argentina in a hurry amid threats and protests over the H982FKL number plate on a car being driven by Jeremy Clarkson.
- The terrified members of the team were stoned by locals as they fled in a convoy towards the Chilean border.
- Locals used social media to inform each other of the team’s attempt to flee the country. One warned: “We’re going to make a barbecue with their meat on the border.”
- It’s believed the number plate was a reference to the Falklands War; a 10-week war war between Argentina and the UK over 2 British overseas territories in the South Atlantic, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
- This incident has renewed calls for the BBC to sack Jeremy Clarkson, who has been involved in a string of controversial incidents over the years.
