Jeremy Clarkson, 61, has spoken out on the reasons why farming has been branded “the most dangerous job in the country”. The former Top Gear presenter keeps busy alongside his TV career by working on his Diddly Squat Farm in Chadlington, Oxfordshire.
However, the star acknowledges that farming comes with many risks, and revealed he has been warned that “being crushed” under his tractor would be “the most painful way to die”.
Jeremy has also witnessed men who have been working alongside him on his farm suffering from accidents recently.
The incidents have made him worry about embarking on work on the automatic door on his new barn after it broke.

“I can still hear the shrill, keening noise he made, though, so there’s no way I was going to try to unjam my barn door while perched on a long wooden killing machine. Especially when I have a JCB telehandler.”
Fortunately for The Grand Tour host, he has not yet met the same painful fate as his co-workers.
