A jump in whiplash claims is continuing to inflate car insurance premiums.

Drivers are paying an average £367 a year, up 2.9 per cent on a year ago, industry figures show. They are just shy of their 2013 peak of £377 a year.

Prices are rising, despite efforts by insurers and the Government to crack down on bogus personal injury claims.
