At least 40 restaurants are taking legal action against insurers over the non-payment of business interruption claims arising from the coronavirus crisis.

The cases are being taken by members of the Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI) against a number of insurers, including FBD and Specialist Underwriting Services (SUS).

Around 25 of the cases were initiated this week, with a further 15 to 20 cases expected to be filed later this month.
