Crash damage claims have doubled compared to a regular week as drivers battle Storm Emma and the Beast from the East.
Drivers have racked up more than £10million in insurance claims this week thanks to Storm Emma
Frosty weather has led to 13,100 collisions since Monday totalling a whopping £17million in damages, according to the AA.
And the number of claims made by Thursday this week was double what insurers would usually expect for the last week of February.
The most common claim was for drivers skidding out and hitting objects like barriers, kerbs, road signs and bus shelters – and one motorist even ended up sliding into a row of shops.
While the majority of incidents attributed to the snow caused relatively minor damage, as many as 21 per cent of claims saw the car involved unable to drive away from the scene.
