The lesson from this year's list of the weirdest insurance claims? Don't, under any circumstances, lock a badger in a shed, or let a baby near your laptop.
By far and away my favourite on the list (compiled by insurance company RIAS) is the Guildford grandfather who held up a baby, Simba-style, to show off over Skype, only to have the poor thing vomit all over the laptop (cost: £437).
Babies didn't feature as highly as animals, though, who were responsible for things like destroying a shed after becoming locked inside, or the snail which ate through a carpet, resulting in a whopping £72 of damage. If you're the sort of person who revels in others' misfortune, you can view the full list here. [Moneywise]
