14th July 2016

I am writing to confirm that we have now completed our search for the information,which you requested on the 15 June 2016.
In this correspondence you asked us:
“Is it legal at all to charge the insurers for the damage that has been caused?”

The claims brought by Highways England are presented as common law claims underTort of Negligence, where there has been a negligent act by someone, there has been material damage to our property and we have incurred costs in rectifying the damage caused.
