Farmers warned to be on standby for adverse weather over festive period

He said: “Checking properties for things like loose roof tiles and gutters in advance can prevent storms causing damage.

 

“Inside, it is also well worth having torches and emergency supplies on hand in case power goes off.”

 

Mr Cawley said when the floods and gales hit, the insurer would be on hand to access affected customers quickly and offer emergency payments where appropriate.

“We are a mutual insurer whose first priority is to help customers when they need us most,” he added.

 

“Our network of local offices means we know our customers and are able to come to their assistance very quickly when they are in trouble after weather events like storms and floods.”
