TV personality and broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson has spent today (Wednesday) filming on the Downs in Eastbourne.

The former presenter of Top Gear announced to his followers on Twitter that he was heading to the town first thing this morning.

He is believed to be filming on private land between Beachy Head and Birling Gap but no further details have been released either by Eastbourne council, which gave the star permission to film on the Downs, or production companies.

A helicopter is also in the area filming from above.

The 56-year-old is best known for co-presenting the BBC TV show Top Gear with Richard Hammond and James May from October 2002 to March 2015.

The trio now present The Grand Tour, a new motoring show for Amazon.
