Motor insurance Compulsory insurance against third party risks. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, heard the defendant motor insurer's appeal against a preliminary ruling that the motor insurer was liable to the claimant owner of a shopping precinct damaged by an insured driver where the driver had deliberately driven into the building and the policy of insurance had specifically excluded deliberate damage. The appeal was allowed, as the damage had been excluded under the insurance policy. The property owner could not seek compensation under the Motors Insurers Bureau scheme because it had claimed on its own property insurance policy and those insurers had brought a subrogated claim against the driver.
