Former child star Macaulay Culkin, currently appearing on the London stage in Madame Melville, is facing a payout of more than £78,000 to an insurance company.

Travelers Property Casualty is seeking to recoup the money it paid out to other tenants in the same block after a fire in the Culkin family's two apartments.

Fire investigators found that the fire in December 1998 spread when Culkin's mother left her home alone with its door open while fleeing the flames.
