Jeremy Clarkson has stepped up and offered to reimburse a five-year-old after thieves stole from his stall of farm goods.

The Grand Tour star was moved after reading about little Harry Clare, who had set up a stall selling eggs, milk and soap outside his parents' glamping site in Malvern in Worcestershire.

The youngster left out an honesty box for people to pay when they bought goods. When he went to check it one morning, he was horrified to discover that everything had been swiped, with just his sign and table left.

His mum Rosie told The Sun there were “lots of tears”, adding: “He had never lost anything from there before and didn't understand why somebody would do that to him.”

Clearly appalled at the story, Clarkson posted a message on Twitter saying he wanted to help.

“I will make good all that was lost,” said the star, 60.

“Please get in touch.”

“And then let’s feed the thieves into a combine,” he joked.

“What a very nice gesture Mr Clarkson,” said one person on Twitter.

Another posted: “What a legend Jeremy is.

“It's quite amazing to me how someone as famous as Jeremy is willing to reach out to a 5 year old child and replace stolen good. So nice.”

“Bring that kid on the show!” suggested another person.
