Winter is here once again, funny that it always seems to happen this time of year, year in, year out. What does winter bring to every householder in the UK? Well, for those that believe, Santa lands his reindeer and sleigh on your roof in the wee hours of the 25th of December, but just how safe is your roof? When was the last time you inspected it?

Pirates are extremely popular today. Unless, of course, you live near Somalia, in which case, your Marine Cargo Insurance premiums are probably through the roof. Everything from colouring books to teddy bears includes the use of the Jolly Roger as decoration and images of swashbuckling pirates cavorting on the high seas.
