Some 93 per cent of UK adults are in favour of clamping down on the number of whiplash claims.

This is according to research by and highlights how the public supports government measures designed to curtail excessive claims.

Two-thirds of those who are in agreement with introducing tough new measures think a compensation culture is being allowed to develop, while 27 per cent are angered at rising insurance costs because of false claims.

Peter Harrison, car insurance expert at MoneySupermarket, stated: "The rising cost of motoring is driving families to despair over their finances and false whiplash claims add around £90 a year to a typical car insurance policy."

He added the current rules need to be tightened to deal with this issue and that action has to be taken in a prompt and efficient manner.
