Armed Robberies of Cash
We have recently seen a rise in incidents involving Armed Robberies of large amounts of cash from Production Companies.
Clearly the thieves are either very lucky or have followed the people carrying these amounts of cash from the Bank having just made a substantial withdrawal.
It is imperative that you check the levels of cover that you hold under the Money section of your policy and fully comply with the Accompaniment Condition that will stipulate how many people are required to accompany this amount of cash.
If you are carrying in excess of the amounts covered under your policy then your Insurers must be advised to see what additional security measures will need to be taken to ensure that you are covered.
For further information please get in touch with your usual insurance contacts.
