Was this a hit and run job? Whilst I know police stations are scarce to say the least, perhaps report by phone. If details of the other cars that might have witnessed the incident are available it would help. It never ceases to amaze me that with the insurance details of those that bother to pay the extortionate prices, are on the police computer how many vehicles are running around uninsured.
None of this helps you and I can only hope you manage to get it sorted.
Personally I think uninsured drivers are scum. As an aside, I look across the road to a young couple and he is an electrician. As a retired copper, I suppose it never goes away, the van was untaxed for a year and his MOT's were always late and what I really cannot get my head round is each year for the past 5 he has had advisiories only to have the vehicle fail next time on the points raised. Especially tyres. Considering the weight of an electricians vehicle given the wire etc, I shudder to think how many times this sort of behaviour is repeated.
Sorry bit of a soap box job!!!!! Insurance and keeping a vehicle legal.
