    Top Gear's WWII Ad Upsets Poles

    Jeremy Clarkson has sparked complaints after joking about a German invasion of Poland on Sunday night’s series finale of Top Gear.

    The BBC and media watchdog Ofcom have both been approached by viewers after the controversial presenter filmed a spoof advert for the German-made Volkswagen Scirocco TDI.

    The clip showed people in Warsaw panicking and rushing to board trains and buses as a mass exodus gripped the city.

    It ended with the line “Volkswagen Scirocco TDI. Berlin to Warsaw in one tank.”
