Police attended and fans had to be turned away from Diddly Squat Farm after hundreds descended following the return of the hit TV series Clarkson's Farm on Friday.

The car park was full by 1pm on bank holiday Monday (April 6) and a police van was seen parked close to the car park's entrance on the remarkably busy day.

Four episodes of season three of the popular show was released on Amazon Prime which resulted in masses flocking to the site near Chipping Norton.

As the queues built up staff warned visitors to move their cars from the grass verge outside of the shop.

Video footage showed hundreds of people arrived with huge queues forming to access the famous farm shop as well as the bar.

Series one and two of Clarkson's Farm, which were released in June 2021 and February 2023 also saw huge numbers of fans descend on the site, causing friction with locals.

After the first season aired Mr Clarkson told his neighbours he was "truly sorry" after the huge amount of traffic led to the police being called.

Last year visitors parked on the verges of Chipping Norton Road despite Oxfordshire County Council telling them to park safely and considerately and warning: "Don’t park on the A361. It’s just too dangerous."

Last year Mr Clarkson was finally given permission by West Oxfordshire District Council to create a new 70-space car park in a field opposite the shop.

It opened in August but it soon became jam-packed with two hour waits.
