North Yorkshire police, who have been investigating the incident, said it would take Tymon’s views “into account” but would continue to interview witnesses.
In a statement, Tymon’s lawyer Paul Daniels said: “Mr. Tymon has informed the police that he doesn’t want to press charges. The events of the last few weeks have been extremely unpleasant for everyone involved. The matter has taken a great toll on Oisin, his family and his friends.”
Tymon’s view was that “all parties should now be allowed to move on,” Daniels said.
“The BBC have, in his view, taken action with a view to addressing the issues at hand,” Daniels said. “Mr. Tymon just wishes to return now to the job at the BBC he loves.”
In a statement, the police said: “This morning, we received a letter from Mr. Tymon’s lawyers indicating that he does not wish the police to pursue an investigation on his behalf.”
It added: “We are grateful to Mr. Tymon for clarifying his position, as we can now take this fully into account.”
Tymon has been the subject of death threats and abuse on social media in recent days, which prompted Clarkson to say Thursday that people should not blame Tymon for his sacking.
Asked if he was afraid of being arrested, Clarkson said: “All I would like to say is I wish people would leave Oisin alone because none of this is his fault.”
