A Bradford MP who has campaigned against the high cost of car insurance in the city has welcomed an announcement that premiums have fallen to a three-year low.

David Ward has been involved in trying to make car insurance more affordable in the city and said the reduced premiums was a result of changes brought about by the coalition Government.

According to the AA, the average motor insurance cost for comprehensive cover is now £531, which is down by 5.6 per cent in the first three months of the year. Full year figures to the end of March show a 16.6 per cent fall, leaving motorists £105 a year better off, on average.
