While Top Gear fans wait for the newest season to arrive on BBC One later this year, or even next year, many have been indulging in the classic episodes which feature the original presenter line-up. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s series have been available to watch at leisure on Netflix. However, subscribers have now found out the streaming giant has removed Top Gear UK from their system and understandably, fans are not happy. 

Car fanatics were left in uproar after logging on to find Top Gear was no longer available to watch. 

Taking to Twitter to comment, one said: “Why was I halfway through the #TopGear special when it got removed. I didn’t sit through part one to have to watch part two on a YouTube screen with the quality of a Nokia brick.”

“I have never felt so sad in my life, for some reason Top Gear is gone from Netflix!!!” Another said. 

Someone else wrote: “Whyyy have you removed top gear off UK Netflix?”
