An Epsom woman is celebrating after she became a company’s five millionth customer.

Janet Gallie of Epsom received a £500 gift voucher from Domestic & General, a leading warranty services group.

Mrs Gallie said: "Thank you so much to Domestic & General for this wholly unexpected Christmas gift.

"We bought our warranty cover to ensure our peace of mind if anything should go wrong with our new fridge, and never dreamt it would lead to this."

Group Chief Executive John Pearmund said: "We are extremely pleased to have reached the milestone of five million UK customers, and especially proud that in our last customer survey we received post- repair satisfaction ratings of over 94 per cent.

"We know how highly people value our services, and we hope that many more people like Mrs Gallie will look to us to help make their lives even easier."

Domestic & General provide product protection for major domestic appliances, consumer electronic products and central heating systems, and provide warranty services for over 150 major UK and International brands.
