The claimant made a claim for fire damage. The insurance company resisted, saying he had exaggerated the costs incurred of alternative accommodation, and of jewelry lost in the fire, and otherwise. The claimant had given several differing accounts of his losses.
Held: The evidence could not be believed, and the action against the insurance company failed. Recommendations were made for a police enquiry.
