Parking fines, insurance claims and fear of spiders - BBC1

How a parking fine can make your insurance claim worthless and how to cure a fear of spiders.

These are just two of the topics covered on the new series of Inside Out, which is due to go on air next Monday October 12th at 7.30pm on BBC ONE.

David Whiteley meets Michelle Barber whose house was burnt down by her ex husband. Now Aviva – formerly known as Norwich Union -  have demanded that she pays back the £240,000 that they gave her, claiming that her policy is void. It's all because Ms Barber didn't realise she should have declared a fine she received for a minor offence back in 2002.

According to charity "Unlock", thousands of householders could be in the same situation because insurance companies don’t make it clear enough that even minor offences count.

The charity says that 1 in 5 of us have a conviction that may need declaring. And its not just the policy holder. If anyone living in your house has a previous conviction this could also make your policy void. Aviva said that whilst Ms Barber's offence was not a major one she failed to declare it. Had she done so they would not have offered her a policy. 

Julie Reinger tries a remarkable technique through Sulis Consulting, that claims to relieve trauma with a single finger. Eye movement therapy has had amazing success for Suzanne. She was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder after a road crash victim died in her arms, and has been unable to drive or work for 3 years. Now Julie wants to see if the same technique can cure her fear of spiders.

This amazing technique is being practised on our very doorsteps by Sulis Consulting in Norwich and if you want to see Sue in action, then take a look at the video of one of her training courses taken by our local Norwich video production company, OPL Productions.
