I was just about to take my coffee and newspaper into the conservatory after my solitary lunch when I heard a noise like a gunshot and went outside to see what it might have been. Couldn't see anything but as I walked back through the conservatory one of the inside roof panes started to crumble and fall out, making a noise like rushing water, just where I would have been sitting, mostly caught by the blind but some would have definitely hit me. The outside pane seems to be intact. Just how weird is that? Can anyone explain?
Is it a Velux window? We had this happen last year with a Velux in one of our bathrooms. There is a known manufacturing fault with windows of certain widths that were fitted several years ago. See https://velux-pw.velux.co.uk/ for details. You should be able to get a free replacement fitted by Velux without using your home insurance.
All the best, Si
