Budget Insurance has launched a waiting list for homeowners to get covered ahead of potential alien invasion.
NASA recently announced seven exoplanets, three of which could potentially support life, had been discovered, but the news has sparked fear among homeowners who are deciding whether their homes and possessions need to be protected if otherworldly creatures are set to settle on Earth.
A home and life insurance firm has even launched a waiting list offering additional security measures to their clients.
A product expert at Budget Insurance, David King said: "Our standard terms and conditions cover a wide range of eventualities, but don't currently stretch to damage caused by alien life forms travelling to Earth. However, who knows what may happen in the future? To be on the safe side, we're opening a waiting list for customers who'd be keen to take out anti-alien damage cover should the need arise."
