A round-up of the latest insurance stories online

Our online readers’ appetite for images has not withered one bit over the summer months as our latest ‘In pictures' gallery stormed to the top of this week's top 10.

A selection of snaps from our recent Manchester roundtable for brokers in the North West was the most popular item on the site and had online readers clicking furiously. Keep an eye out for more exciting photo galleries to come.

There was an almost equal level of excitement for our piece detailing the charges against four people connected to an alleged £4m insurance fraud. The story caused traffic on the site to spike when it landed in the inboxes of our online readers.

The latest update in a saga that has caused quite a stir on our website in recent weeks was again high in the rankings. The £13.7m payout to a Guernsey cyclist has received a mammoth number of clicks, and our story detailing how UK insurers could now be set to re-examine all of their Guernsey-based risks was another success.

We also gave our online subscribers an exclusive first glimpse of our analysis, which looked at the possible implications of the ruling.

Half-time results from Lloyd’s generated a mass of online coverage after its profits halved as it bore the brunt of record claims from catastrophes, including the BP oil disaster and the earthquake in Chile.

Elsewhere, online readers were attracted to details of Cunningham Lindsey’s involvement at a massive care home fire, including pictures from the scene.

Meanwhile, exclusive content on NIG and banned brokers within our subscriber-only channels is also continuing to rank highly.
