A MAN who staged a sit-in protest at the offices of Direct Line in Bromley this morning has left victorious after the company agreed to pay him nearly £7,000.

Malcolm Potts, 48, had come all the way from Buckinghamshire to sort out his differences with the insurance company, which he said owed him the cash following an accident in which he was injured.

He had previously said he would come back to the office in Westmoreland Road every day until the issue was resolved.

A Direct Line spokesperson described Mr Potts as “very charming” and said the company had investigated the issue “as a matter of urgency”.
