A leading British insurer has reported a collapse in motor claims during the pandemic, prompting questions about the low value of rebates being offered to drivers here.

Direct Line in the UK said motor claims notifications were down 70pc in April.

It comes as insurers here are offering average rebates of between €25 and €33 per policy, after being put under pressure from the Government to give drivers refunds.
