£200M COST OF BUNCEFIELD BLASTS
Wednesday, January 4: An expert in insurance to the
energy sector has put the cost of the Buncefield oil depot disaster at a massive £200 million.
Damage to the depot itself makes up £100 million while an incredible £20 million worth of fuel went up in flames during the gigantic blaze.

The value of the destruction to the industrial estate, where some businesses were decimated, is calculated at £50 million.

The figures have been compiled by David Way, executive director of the international energy division at the London-based insurance brokers Alexander Forbes.

Many wild statistics were bandied around at the time of the biggest peacetime explosion in Europe, but Mr Way's is the first authoritative figure.

Nope. Most of it will come from insurance companies. Although they'll put their premiums up, affecting most people in the UK. So yeah, it becomes like a tax. Just one without the checks and balances.
