Fundamentally dishonest claimants face contempt proceedings

A High Court Judge has permitted a contempt of court application to go ahead following new CCTV evidence coming to light. The claimants in the matter had originally claimed serious whiplash injuries from a road traffic accident involving a bus. However, the new evidence shows the claimant’s car had hardly moved upon impact with the bus. This gross fabrication has led to contempt proceedings being levelled as the claimants, with Mr Justice Spence adding that there was “a significant public interest” in allowing contempt cases such as this to proceed.
