Bolton-based buildings and contents damage management company One Call said it had increased its turnover by £4m.

As a result, it said it now had plans to double its size over the next 18 months.

One Call said it had lost £4m worth of work within nine months during 2003 as a result of the decision of some insurance companies to work only with national suppliers.

But it said a radical restructuring programme had allowed it to create a network of 97 outlets nationally, and helped boost turnover to £5m for the year.
