The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has slammed the “unnecessary, unworkable and unfair” European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling that could force off-road vehicle users to take out third party insurance.

The trade body said there was “no evidence” that the 2014 Vnuk ruling was needed in the UK.

It added that if the law on motor insurance were to change it “could prove the next lucrative hunting ground for claims management companies”.
