  1. EDF Energy is upping electricity prices by 2.7%, hitting about 1.3 million customers in the pocket. The company said the rise would add about £16 a year to dual fuel households. Gas prices remain unchanged, it said. As a result, typical dual-fuel customers will see their bill rise by 1.4%, or £16 a year, bringing the typical annual bill to £1,158 a year. The move comes just two days after British Gas became the first of the so-called Big 6 energy providers to break ranks and increase tariffs. https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/1-3m-edf-energy-customers-hit-2-7-rise-electrici
  2. Hi guys, Hoping all is well and this is correct sub-forum to post in. I am writing on behalf of my friend and looking to get advice. My friend was cycling last night over a busy junction. He was overtaking the car in front of him on drivers side due to slow moving. Suddenly the driver of the vehicle has decided to make a right turn through a double white lines and rammed my friend on bicycle. (See PDF attached with image of the details). He has fallen down, hurt his body in several places and damaged his bike. The driver of the vehicle did not provide his insurance details. Ho
  3. Update on General data Protection Regulations due to hit in may 2018 There is a overt permission of Data Subject to consent to processing of data, so a CRA processing John Doe's data without him knowing could fall foul. Likewise a DCA. Full implications are not yet known http://www.idgconnect.com/blog-abstract/26688/what-gdpr http://www.idgconnect.com/blog-abstract/24273/gdpr-probably-won-decimate-businesses-leave-burned Discuss?
  4. Dear All, I’m looking for some advice please. Some time ago I had a road traffic accident. When cycling a car cut me off. I didn’t have a chance to break and hit the car, went through my handle bars and hit the ground. The driver drove off from the accident scene but the registration plates were known to the Police because one of the witnesses took photo of that car. I had many injuries and was taken to hospital. After sometime Police sent me a letter and informed me that ..."the driver of the other vehicle registration number XXXXXXX was unable to be traced"...
  5. A motorist has hit out at Asda after she was 'charged' £99 before she filled her car up with fuel. Jade Louise claims she was debited £99 on top of her £5 petrol transaction at an Asda in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and says there were no signs warning customers about the fee. MasterCard said the charge was introduced at automated fuel pumps so that customers didn't fill up with more fuel than they could afford - but says no money will be taken from their accounts. However Jade claims she was left out of pocket for three days. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5703487

  8. Hi All. My partner was on the main road and pulled in to let the bus pass and the bus swung wide and scrapped the side of her car. He admitted liability on the spot and passed all the details on for the council. Question is what should she do till she can speak with them on Monday in terms of speaking to her insurance etc Cheers
  9. Could I please ask a bit of advice for a friend. She is only young and was hit by a car whilst walking home one night. She was on the pavement and the car insurer has obviously accepted full liability. She went to a Solicitor who has urged her to accept an out of court settlement of £5,500 She had head injuries and needed stitches Had 3 broken ribs Post Traumatic Stress Missed her exams Three weeks loss of salary Out of this she needs to pay her Solicitor 25% Does this seem a fair settlement?

  12. I was at Sainsbury's last week and sitting in my car in the car park, reading my emails before I went into the shop. Engine was off and I was stationary. Suddenly an almighty thump from behind. I jumped out thinking someone had reversed into me, but found that the car that had hit me had no driver. Turns out the dozy bint had parked her 4wd without putting on the handbrake, or put it in gear and just waked off into the shop. Plenty of witnesses, and video. The lady came back and admitted fault, but asked to send her the quote to fix to avoid having to claim on insurance. Got
  13. It would appear that new tax rules will apply to Non Doms from April 2017. There is some information in the link below - but mostly all I could find was being reported by the FT - which doesn't like being linked. https://www.thebestof.co.uk/local/shrewsbury/community-hub/blog/view/shrewsbury-financial-adviser-warns-of-non-dom-danger
  14. Hi All, Just a word of advice....... If your ever are unfortunate enough to be hit by a driver insured with Royal Sun Alliance, Please make sure you DO NOT LET them try to resolve it even if they admit full liability..... Our parked car was hit by a RSA Client and you wouldnt believe the hassle we have had and is still on going...... * Failed to provide a loan vehicle due to various reasons (staff shortages / Needing to see the original cover note before letting you take car away but they couldnt confirm details of loan vehicle until we got to their pick up point, which m

  17. Bit of advice please; My sister was in her car stationary at a set of lights when a child (teenager) cyclist came up the inside and collided with her mirror and knocked it off. This was outside of a school and the incident was seen by a teacher - the cyclist is a pupil at the school. Dos my sister have any redress against anyone ie child or parents, as she will have to pay for the damage herself if not which seems just a little unjust.
  18. as the title says, I need some advice. Last night I was playing taxi service to my Mum, a small price to pay for the 17 years she did it for me. On my way I came to a mini roundabout slowing down as, the left turning is blind and I could see headlights. The car then jumped into the wrong lane cut the mini roundabout and caught my car, scraping the front bumper with the side of his car. I was about 2 feet away from the give way lines on the roundabout. It was then the pursuing police car came shooting past, pursuing the other car. After stopping and checking

  20. hi yesterday a car was driving like a nutter behind my wifes car with the young kids in it, she slowed down to let him pass and just as she done it he mounted the grass verge on the left and drove into the left front wing causing a dent, he shouted out of the window and drove off. my 16 year old daughter got the make and reg of the car which was a dark blue Vauxhall insignia, when we reported this to the police they said it must have had fake plates on as the car should have been a white Vauxhall insignia. this seems funny as the wife says it was blue and at 1pm in the afternoon I th
  21. Hi all, I am hoping someone can advise me of the likely outcome of this situation that I find myself in. My car was recently hit by our local recycling firm causing some damage to the bodywork - car itself is ok. No note was left by the driver, although he apparently got out and had a look at the damage before driving off! A note was left by an independent witness however. I have contacted the company in question and they have moved quite quickly so far. Called them on Monday, they came and viewed car on Wednesday and then called me on Friday to say their insurers would be
  22. Hi All, would really appreciate some advice on the following that happened about three weeks ago now. I reversed my car into the entrance of a car park to a block of flats (during the day on a cloudy/rainy day), I could see the low level wall (about a foot high), but I did not see the rusty coloured metal room support joist beam that had been upended and placed at the end of the wall. There are no reflectors on it, it is not painted a bright colour, it is there to stop people hitting the wall - which it does very well indeed. However, it left a big hol
  23. A staggering 96% of complaints resolved by the Energy Ombudsman last year resulted in an award to consumers, far exceeding other sectors. The figures reveal that more consumers are taking action against poor service, with a growing awareness that you have somewhere to turn if things go wrong. The Ombudsman tackled 61,019 cases – compared with 26,760 in 2013/14. Almost 9 in 10 complaints referred to the Ombudsman involved billing issues, with bungled supplier transfers and misleading sales contributing to most of the other complaints.

  25. Mac users hit by rare ransomware attack, spread via Transmission BitTorrent app Mac owners who use the open source Transmission BitTorrent client are being warned that a version of the installer was distributed via the app's official website, infected with a new family of ransomware. It is believed that hackers managed to compromise the installer of Transmission version 2.90 on its download site on Saturday, March 4, in order to spread ransomware that researchers at Palo Alto Research have dubbed "KeRanger." The outcome is that if you were unfortunate enough to install Trans
