Birmingham named worst city for 'crash for cash' claims

Birmingham has been ranked as England's "crash for cash" capital.

The second city is the number one location where motorists are most likely to fall victim to the scam, according to an insurance group.

Aviva said 25% of its 3,000 "crash for cash" claims last year were in Birmingham, in particular the B11 area of Sparkbrook, Sparkhill and Tyseley.

Research showed Leeds, Harrow, parts of London, Bradford, Luton, Coventry and Oldham were all in the top 10 hotspots.
