Trio's bus accident injuries were invented

One-year prison sentences have been handed to a bridegroom and his parents after they were found guilty of whiplash claim fraud.

Manchester Crown Court heard that the three attempted to make whiplash claim for neck injuries sustained in a bus accident on the day of the bridegroom's wedding. They each had hoped to net around £1,500 in passenger injury compensation.

However, after the emergence of video evidence showing the three partying after the collision, judges became suspicious and passed the footage onto the Director of Public Prosecutions.

A police spokesperson condemned the false whiplash claims, saying, "This was not only an attempt to make a false insurance claim for money; this was also an insult to the civil courts system. These three family members knowingly lied during a civil hearing in front of a judge.

"False insurance claims are criminal, fraudulent offences."
