Car was only hit from the rear, so no visible damage to the rear of the car until you look in the boot under where the spare tyre is located.
Wheel arch liners appear to have been moved by the collision forcing them to rub against the inside of the tyres, I have drilled a hole in both of them & secured to a solid fixture underneath the car with cable ties. Wheel liners & the inside of the tyres were scored when we took the rear wheels off to put the cable ties on. Can't say for sure if the wheel arch liners are loose or if they are forced by body damage.
