Cardiff-based Carlyle Insurance Brokers, part of the Julian Hodge Bank Group, is planning a star turn after setting up a specialist team to cover the UK and international media industry.

The team will be headed by Sandy Fountain (pictured) who has worked with S4C Television in Wales.

Stars recently covered by the division include Patrick Bergin, Samantha Janus, Rik Mayall and Emma Samms.

Carlyle provides insurance cover for every type of production from one-day shoots to full production against a wide range of liabilities including the disability or death of any scheduled artist, loss or damage of film negative or master videotape.

All equipment associated with the production is covered, including wardrobe, props, sets, cameras and sound equipment.
