A round-up of the latest insurance stories online

Our online readers just love to know what their industry counterparts are up to, and there’s no greater measure of this than our online top 10 this week.

No fewer than three photo stories made the rankings and, combined with a selection of heavy-hitting news stories, traffic on insurancetimes.co.uk over the past week has soared sky high.

Top of the pile, and one of our rather more light-hearted stories of the year so far, was a photo gallery of RSA chief executive Adrian Brown being gunged, all for a good cause of course. A bit of Friday afternoon fun turned out to be a massive online hit as the story racked up a mega number of clicks.

This was closely followed by the photos from our Fantasy Football party last month and the snaps from our latest Claims Clinic event.

The most popular news stories concerned major developments at insurance law firm Halliwells, which has filed for administration. The story also made headlines on sites in other closely linked industries. The Lawyer website asked ‘What next for Halliwells?’

A report that revealed insurance workers, more than any other profession, are the most stressed out and likely to turn to alcohol as a result caused a flurry of comments online. One anonymous poster echoed the thoughts of many, saying: “Is this really surprising?”

Elsewhere on the web, the exit of Jon Pain from the FSA’s board was widely covered on financial news sites.

Don’t forget, if you’re a fan of Facebook do look up the Insurance Times page and get the latest updates. Or why not send us a tweet? You can follow me on Twitter: @InsTimesDanny or get the latest breaking news: @InsTimes News.
