Claims soar as big freeze hits insurer

INSURER RSA warned its bill for UK weather-related claims was expected to be £11m more than normal after the coldest December for 1 years. Last month's snow and freezing conditions sent claims for snow and burst pipes soaring, with around 8, claims at an average cost of £6,7 since November. The UK hit contributed to an overall weather impact that was £142m more than normal for November and December.
