Homeowners around the UK could soon be reaching for their telephones in order to call in a professional tradesman once the effects of the big freeze become apparent.
Santander Insurance has revealed some of the most common fears held by the people of the country ahead of a period of predicted frost, snow and wintry conditions.
It noted that a quarter of Britons are worried about the damage that such weather may cause to their properties.
And it is not only material problems that are on the minds of many, with other concerns including the increased threat of personal injury.
“In winter many people have more concerns and fears due to darker nights and the effects of harsher weather conditions,” explained Steve Burton, head of marketing at Santander.
Last month, rural insurance provider NFU Mutual suggested people in the UK should spend some of their resources on ensuring their pipes are protected against the threat of freezing.
