Jeremy Clarkson’s furious neighbours brand him fame-hungry in row over his farm shop plans

He said: “The change cannot be justified as being advantageous to the building’s potential other uses, when no permission has been granted, or requested, as yet, for change of use.

“This is clearly part of the applicant’s repeated intention to use the buildings as an all day, late night cafe and bar and to wilfully ignore and abuse the planning process.”

A supporting letter for Jeremy’s planning application, written by JPPC chartered town planners, declared they are only applying for permission to appease locals.

It read: “We are aware of the level of public interest in the site and thus have made an application in order that the Council and neighbours are fully appraised of the intended works ahead of their execution.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Jeremy for comment.

Ronnie Wood opens pop-up shop featuring his paintings

The legendary guitarist, 74, unveiled the shop this week and said it will stay open until July 31 at a spot on London’s fashionable Carnaby Street. He said: “The shop will feature my original artworks, along with limited editions, brand new box-sets and set lists.” 

Ronnie has been producing artwork for decades.

In 2018, he released The Rolling Stones Set Lists, a book featuring more than 100 pieces painted by him.

The opening comes just months after fans were shocked when his wife Sally, 43, revealed Ronnie’s secret cancer battle.

It was revealed in April that Ronnie had been given the all-clear after being diagnosed with small cell cancer during lockdown.

‘Have to close it down' Jeremy Clarkson reveals plan to shut farm shop over council demand

In a column for Sunday Times back in March, Jeremy recounted the many demands he’s received from the council since opening his shop.

He penned: “My shop had only been open a few days when we received a stern letter warning us that our rather lovely ice cream had been made from the juice of cows that lived eight miles away, in Gloucestershire, and that this contravened a clause that said that we could only sell produce from West Oxfordshire.

“Since then we’ve been told that the roof is the wrong colour, that the sign is 0.3 of a metre too wide, that we aren’t allowed to sell teas and coffees, that the gingham covering on the straw bales contravenes Covid regulations, that the car park is a road safety hazard, that the sausage rolls are wrong in some unfathomable way, and that if we were allowed to sell beer, yobbos would come and urinate in the graveyard.”

Savvy mum-of-four shares how she paid just £10 for £90 supermarket shop – tips and tricks

Supermarkets as well as coffee chains, have started to partner up with Too Good To Go to help customers get their hands on food that would otherwise go to waste. One savvy mum-of -four, Sarah Whitfield from Warrington, has shared how she managed to save £83.70 using the app.

She told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: “I got a mystery box from a store called The Bridge Hub. I try to pick up these boxes twice a month as they really help to feed my family on a budget.

“You never know what you are going to get, and that’s what makes it exciting. We usually find that at least most of the groceries are suitable for us to use over the course of the week.

“I pick up these boxes between 11 and 12 on either a Tuesday or Thursday, and with my most recent one I was impressed to find that the items were originally worth £93.70 in total.

“This means I saved £83.70 by using the mystery box service, which will make a big difference! I got 36 items in total, so I worked out that means I got each item for an average of about 27p.”

“I worked out that this section of the shop cost me £2.43, and it was worth £19.78, so I saved £17.35!”

Sarah also bagged herself plenty of dairy items as well as meat options including sausages.

Snacks, cereal and juice were also included in the box.

The savvy shopper explained that she made use of the Too Good To Go app to book the mystery box collection.

She said: “It’s really good for bargains and discounts. You have to check it numerous times a day to find different deals.

“The enchilada kit meant I could whip up a quick meal which everyone loved, and my son loved mixing the brownie mix to make a batch of treats.

“I also made several pasta dishes using the meat I got in the mystery box, and I made some snack plates for the kids using the fruit and vegetables.

“We are a family of six so it all goes quite quickly. Anything we don’t use straight away gets frozen or anything we won’t eat gets given to family and friends.”

Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk said: “Sarah has made a truly impressive saving with this mystery box haul.

“Making the most of apps such as Too Good To Go is a great way to try out new products you wouldn’t usually buy at a fraction of the price, while also helping to combat food waste.

“More and more members of our community are sharing their zero waste recipes and meal hacks on our cheap supermarket cooking group on Facebook, so hopefully stories like this one will raise awareness of how you can both pick up bargains and save food from being thrown away.”

Morrisons, Pret A Manger, Costa and fast-food restaurants are amongst those operating on the app.

It can be downloaded onto mobile devices and users can scan their local area to see which retailers are offering discounted goods.

Jeremy Clarkson: Police called as hundreds rush to visit his farm shop after show success

Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has recently admitted to feeling “genuinely amazed” over the response from fans to his new show, Clarkson’s Farm. It comes as police have had to intervene at his farm in the Cotswolds after viewers rushed to the location to visit in their hundreds over the weekend.

Jeremy’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop, where he sells his crops to the public, has been inundated with fans of the hit Amazon Prime show in recent weeks.

Unfortunately, despite customers being welcome at the shop, fans also reportedly caused huge traffic jams by arriving in droves to the small Chipping Norton town where Clarkson’s farm is based.

Eager fans were also pictured queueing up to get into Diddly Squat Farm.

A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police has confirmed that they were called about the congestion on the roads over the weekend.

“Clarkson will not be remotely bothered. I’m sure he’s laughing at us all from behind the shop till,” a third person claimed.

Jeremy bought his farm in 2008, before getting to work on it in 2020 during the coronavirus lockdown. 

Cameras followed his progress for his Amazon Prime show.

He then opened the Diddly Squat Farm Shop in 2020, which sells local produce, and a small cafe and bar.

Food shop alert as YOUR supermarket bill set to soar due to EU red tape

The alarm was sounded by the British Retail Consortium, which also noted rising global food prices. Boris Johnson’s new Brexit trade deal with the EU took effect in January.

This reintroduced customs checks on the trade of many products between the bloc and Britain.

It also resulted in some checks on goods travelling from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

This move infuriated Northern Irish unionists who are demanding the inspections are scrapped.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, BRC chief executive Helen Dickinson said UK food prices could increase later this year.

She commented: “Global food prices are currently at their highest in seven years, shipping costs have risen threefold since 2019, and commodity prices are climbing.

“We will likely see these costs filter through in the second half of this year, and with the additional Brexit red-tape this autumn, retailers may be forced to pass on some of these costs onto their customers.”

Retail giant Marks & Spencer has reported a sharp rise in costs this year due to Brexit related red-tape.

It expects to pay between £42m and £47m in additional costs this year, versus £16 million in 2020.

It said: “The free trade agreement with the EU means we will not incur tariffs on our core UK sales.

“However potential tariffs on part of our range exported to the EU, together with very complex administrative processes, will significantly impact our businesses in Ireland, the Czech Republic and our franchise business in France which we are actively working to mitigate.”

Whilst Britain formally quit the EU in January 2020, it remained closely tied to the bloc until the end of December, during the Brexit transition period.

During this time the UK remained part of the European Single Market.

It also continued paying into the EU’s budget and imposing many laws made in Brussels.

This ended at the close of December when Boris Johnson’s new EU trade deal came into effect.

Tensions surged in Northern Ireland over the new checks, with loyalist rioting across the province in April.

Brexit Minister Lord Frost has branded the current arrangement “unsustainable”, and is urging the EU to compromise.

The UK infuriated Brussels by unilaterally deciding it would delay implementing some of the new border checks.

In response, the EU launched legal action against Britain.

Jay Blades: The Repair Shop star bids emotional farewell as he shares 'last day' news

“They tell me who is coming on and we do it one take.

“We have formed as a family (workshop staff) and you take the mickey out of each other, so you do what a family does. 

“That is what the production company has done.”

Jay has also spoken of growing up in Hackney, East London, where he was subjected to vile racist abuse.

He said: “There was racism too. I was spat on and beaten up at school.

“I haven’t done bad considering I was deemed thick. Nobody realised I had dyslexia.”
