Britain’’s most bizarre insurance claimsAugust 18th, 2008 - 7:03 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 18 (ANI): Cars kicked by camels and damaged by nut-wielding squirrels are among some of Britain’’s most bizarre insurance claims.
Other claims revealed by insurance company www.elephant.co.uk, motorists have cited naked pedestrian jumping on top of their car, as well as decomposing carrots smeared across the road.
One female driver managed to fill her tank with the wrong substance after mistaking shampoo for a container of petrol.
A Harrier jet was accused of an incident when a motorist reported his windscreen melted when the aircraft crash landed nearby and burst into flames.
Another windscreen was destroyed when by squirrel throwing a nut from a tree overhead.
Perhaps the most unlikely culprit singled out in the claims was a pile of decomposing carrots, which caused a driver to skid and lose control of his vehicle.
It shows drivers need to be aware of their surroundings all the time, the Sun quoted Elephant.co.uk boss Brian Martin, as saying. (ANI)
