Fees charged for medical reports of people who say they have suffered whiplash injuries are to be heavily reduced in a bid to tackle fraudulent claims.
Charges of up to £700 will be drastically cut to £180 for an initial whiplash report, under plans announced by Justice Secretary Chris Grayling.
The government said the measures were aimed at combating Britain's "compensation culture", which sees 500,000 whiplash claims take place each year.
Insurers estimate the claims add £90 a year to the average motor insurance policy.
