Hailstones cause thousands of pounds of damage to cars in Daventry
Parked cars in a Daventry estate were subject to thousands of pounds worth of damage after a sudden hail shower on Sunday afternoon. One Lang Farm resident, 31-year-old engineer Edward George, said one of his Audi cars had £3,000 worth of damage and about 200 dents to the bodywork, while his other Audi had about 120 dents, causing £2,500 worth of damage. Insurers were in the Lang Farm area on Tuesday assessing the damage, which will be covered by individuals’ insurance companies but will affect people’s no claims bonuses. “My outdoor furniture has had holes punched through it,” said Mr George, who lives with his wife Radka and their two-month-old boy.
