Storms whip up car claims


The broker said it recorded 991 claims over the first five days of January with Scotland in particular suffering from severe gales which resulted in 65% of all claims there being weather related.

The company calculated that its figures meant that the equivalent of over 5,600 car insurance claims nationally could be related to the weather. It also highlighted that the number of claims was higher than the first five days of 2010 when the country was blanketed by snow.
