Analysing the figures, drawn from Association of British Insurers data, Deloitte said that, as of December 31 2013, insurers dealt with nearly 200,000 weather-damage insurance claims to properties.

Deloitte’s insurance partner James Rakow said:  ‘Widespread storms and floods in the final three months of 2013 generated 198,000 insurance claims, which is the highest number of weather-related fourth-quarter claims in the past 10 years.’

Property damage accounted 172,000 insurance claims, domestic pipe leaks for 5,000 and commercial weather-related claims stood at 22,000.
