Over 100,000 plumbing problems were caused by the bitter winter temperatures

10th Feb 2011

The Association of British Insurers has shed further light on the extent of boiler problems which occurred as a result of December’s freezing weather.

According to the Association, around 103,000 cases of burst pipes were reported, which resulted in heating and plumbing problems across the UK.

The statistics show a 35 per cent rise in claims compared to the whole of last winter. The Association also noted that this has resulted in the highest total bill ever recorded for a period of freezing weather in the UK.
