Car insurance costs down 'due to fraud clampdown'

The cost of car insurance is falling at a record rate in the UK, according to the insurance arm of the AA.

The average annual comprehensive car insurance quote fell to £594.84 this month, it said, down 9.8% from £659.53 last July - the biggest decrease since the AA insurance index began in 1994.

Graham Trudgill from the British Insurance Brokers' Association said the dip was thanks, in part, to clampdowns on fraud and restrictions on claims management companies.
