Storms Dudley and Eunice are gripping the UK this week, so protecting your house and knowing how to make an insurance claim could be vital in the event that your home is affected. 

Storm Dudley has left thousands in the north east of England without power, causing travel disruption on roads and train lines. And the Met Office has warned people to “stay indoors” ahead of Storm Eunice moving in, with winds expected to reach 100m on Friday in west Wales and south west England.
