Whiplash plans to 'cut car insurance premiums by £40'

Millions of motorists could see their car insurance premiums reduced as a result of plans to cut compensation for whiplash injuries.

Whiplash claims have risen by 50% over the past decade, costing insurance companies about £1bn a year.

The government said insurers have pledged to pass on the savings, worth about £40 a year.

Following a promise made last year, ministers are looking at scrapping the right to compensation or capping it.
