(Even if you exchanged insurance details at the scene, which I didn't know 'til I looked it up just now!) I'm also not sure what might be the repercussions of NOT telling my insurance company. Suppose they found out somehow?

On reflection I'd be making telephone calls now...
I have already contacted my insurance and they have advised me that I can deal with it myself or I can go through them but they will write the car off because of the age and as of reporting it that was the first thing I did and they have logged it and made me fill out a form so I have done everything by the book I'm not trying to do anything dodgy I'm only doing what I have been advised on by my insurance they are fully aware as are the police, I just don't want my car written off as I won't get much in terms of pay out so that's why I was asking how to go about sorting the bonnet
