RECORD SUMMER EXPECTED TO CAUSE SUBSIDENCE CLAIMS SURGE

After one of the hottest summers on record, UK insurers are now bracing themselves for a surge in subsidence claims.
According to the Met Office, 2018 was the joint hottest summer on record for the UK as a whole, and the hottest ever for England.
It said the average summer temperature this year across the UK was 15.80C, marginally above 1976 (15.77C), when there was a widespread drought; 2003 (15.77C), when the highest temperature ever was recorded in the UK; and 2006 (15.78C), when the record for the hottest month was set.
