Anglesey pays out on 311 claims, but 100 still unsettled


A council in North Wales has paid out almost £800,000 in insurance claims over the past five years, according to the BBC. 

Anglesey council paid out £793,234 between 2010-2011 and 2014-2015 on a total of 311 claims.

In 2010-2011, it paid out £354,507, falling to £32,805 in 2014-15.

There are still 100 unsettled claims dating to 2010, with £1.2m reserved to cover any potential costs.

Insurance claims included public liability, employer’s liability, motor, and property.

A report for the council said there had been a “significant” increase in public liability claims since 2012.

“This increase is mostly due to an increase in highway-related claims, such as damage to vehicles on potholes,” the report said.
