Jeremy Clarkson got into the spirit of being a farm owner by telling a group of students to "get off my land".

Unfortunately for the 61-year-old former Top Gear presenter, it was him that ended up being reprimanded by the teacher who was leading the youngsters.

The Grand Tour host has a 1,000-acre working farm in Oxfordshire and in his latest column, he has detailed what happened when a group of Duke of Edinburgh students, wanted to use his land as part of their activities.

Jeremy described the moment he saw the teenagers making themselves at home in a field as "alarming" as he had not long planted a turtle dove mix there which was "extremely expensive".

The TV personality looked to give a bit of sweetness with his ire to come, telling the supervisor that he was a big fan of the scheme, which was founded by Prince Philip in 1956.

Not such a big fan though to not want the students in his field.

He said that while it is important that this generation grew up knowing where food came from, especially those who live in built-up areas..

What irked Jeremy was how the group were using his property during the incident earlier this month.

He said: "I found a gang of them sitting in my garden.

"Some were attempting to light a stove, some were moaning about the mobile phone signal, and one was heading for my hedge with some bog roll."

Jeremy said that he offered to help but claims that was a coded message and was "farmer-speak for 'get off my land'".

The teens said that their teacher had told them they "should have their lunch in the garden of the biggest house they could find".

Adapting to the situation, Jeremy said that they couldn't use that piece of land as a bathroom, so said that they could use a toilet in his farm instead.

Jeremy said that he was immediately reprimanded by "some kind of supervisor" that it was "emphatically not OK for me to take one of them to the lavatory".

Social distancing rules meant that this would be difficult, then Jeremy was told by his tractor driver that the group's supervisor's car was blocking the track back to the house.

Speaking to The Sunday Times: "He summoned his 'I know my rights' adenoids to say that it was a public footpath, and I had to retort in my special menacing tone, explaining that you can't drive on a footpath, or picnic on it, and that you sure as hell can't defecate on it."

Matters got worse for Jeremy though as he was told that a second group was on its way and with more teenagers arriving, he said "the scene was alarming".

Jeremy said: "It looked like some kind of juvenile scat movie was in full swing.

"They were pushing used lavatory paper into the watering pipes for my new trees."

Jeremy asked where the teacher was: "It turned out he was in the village... while it's great that these kids are out in the fresh air, learning how to get around using nothing but abandoned teacher Peugeots as marker points, it doesn't really help them understand the land if there's no one around to tell them stuff."
