The man behind TV's THE Incredible Hulk is battling with his insurance company in a California court this week (begs29MAR04) over alleged missed payments.

A mould problem at Lou Ferrigno's Santa Monica, California, home has cost the actor and his wife more than $50,000 (GBP27,780) to fix, but their insurance company, MERCURY, has only paid up $4,000 (GBP2,220).

The problems stemmed from a leaky toilet, and Ferrigno states the mould saga has been nothing but "aggravation and stress".

But Mercury Insurance Company bosses insist the payment they've made to the Ferrignos has been "more than adequate".
