BBC’s ‘Top Gear’ Stars Pelted With Stones in Argentina

The stars of hit British TV show Top Gear were forced to flee from a shoot in Argentina when local veterans took offence to their apparent references to the Falklands War.

The cast and crew had to abandon their cars after being pelted with stones by an angry mob, according to the Irish Independent newspaper.

The drama was sparked by the number plate on one of the vehicles, which read H982 FKL, which the veterans felt was a nod to the Falklands conflict of 1982.

TV bosses at the BBC insist the plate was not chosen deliberately.
