The Lloyds of London insurance market has seen a 14% rise in profits for 2013 to £3.2bn.

The results are the first since Lloyds appointed Inga Beale to be its new chief executive - their first woman CEO in 325 years.

She said the market's ''unique position'' was that it focussed on specialist insurance - from ships and their cargoes to singers' voices.
