Jeremy Clarkson bombs out with locals

CONTROVERSIAL TV personality Jeremy Clarkson is used to "bombs".

But his neighbours in Oxfordshire in England were horrified when Clarkson blew up his old $7 million farmhouse to make way for a six-bedroom mansion.

The former Top Gear host was granted permission to demolish his five-bedroom home and build a new one in July.

But instead of calling in the bulldozers, a demolition firm razed the property to the ground in a massive explosion, while reportedly a funeral was taking place in the local village.
