Jeremy Clarkson has angered council officials after flying a drone in a rare bird protection area.
The former Top Gear presenter was shooting on the set of his new car show The Grand Tour when he was spotted flying a small drone.
Clarkson used the device on set at Beachy Head in East Sussex. Remote-controlled flying machines such as this one are banned in the area as it is known as a key nesting area for Peregrine falcons.
The rare bird of prey is the fastest animal on earth with a top speed of 242mph and are a protected species in the UK. Council chiefs are said to have complained about the stunt.
The 56-year-old is no stranger to controversy. Throughout his time on Top Gear he continually drew complaints from viewers. In 2004 the BBC was forced to pay £250 compensation to a Somerset parish council after Clarkson crashed a Toyota Hilux into a 30-year-old horse chestnut tree.
In 2008, he drew more than 500 complaints after making a joke about lorry drivers murdering prostitutes. A Member of Parliament in Ipswich, where five prostitutes were murdered in 2006, demanded Clarkson be sacked.
The presenter's most recent transgression saw him lose his Top Gear job. He admitted to assaulting a member of the production staff after a shoot.
