Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has announced a change to the legal system that will slash the fees lawyers charge for bringing accident claims to court.

The latest series of reforms sees the amount lawyers can charge for processing simple claims for minor injuries suffered in road accidents cut from £1,200 to just £500.
