Insurance losses from northern England floods could be 80-120 mln stg-PwC

LONDON, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Recent flooding in northern England could lead to 80-120 million pounds ($255.92 million) in insurance losses, consultants PwC said on Wednesday.

Residents were told to evacuate their homes last week after deluges brought a month's rainfall in less than 24 hours.

The estimates could rise in the next few days, depending on the extent of further rainfall, Mohammad Khan, general insurance leader at PwC said.
