THOUSANDS of motorists and small firms that have vans will be forced to find a new insurer after Dublin-based Setanta Insurance said it was winding up its business here.

Close to 100,000 people are insured with the company, mainly small firms that have vans. But there are also a number of consumers who have private insurance. The company said all policies would be fully covered and it would honour legitimate claims.
