The Ward family told Sky News they witnessed a long, expletive-laden rant by Clarkson, who told his colleague he would get him fired for the oversight.
Sue Ward, 54, a medical receptionist, said Clarkson’s behaviour towards the employee was deplorable.
“He said he hadn’t done his job properly, it was ridiculous that there was nothing to eat, obviously there was lots of expletives in between all this, and that he would be losing his job, he would see to it that he would lose his job,” she said.
Bob Ward, 60, said Clarkson arrived in a helicopter at around 9.30pm and would not have his picture taken.
“I said ‘Any chance of a selfie Jeremy?'” He replied: “No, not with the day I’ve had today.”
