    Ideally you need to track the owner without phoning your insurance as otherwise you will have to pay them £900 and im pretty certain the damage to the other car will be cheaper and if you and the other guy can come to some sort of agreement without involving the insurance then you will be better off in the long run.

    You need to phone the shop (dont panic just be calm explain the situation etc) they will review CCTV and should give you the registration which you will need in order to track the owner. It may be that it was an employee of the shop. Also NOTHING is going to happen to you, Hit & Run is only really noticed if their was people involved, it is a "criminal offence" but then again so is stealing sweets and you wont exactly get life imprisonment. By tommorow afternoon if the shop do not give you any help (unlikely) then just phone 111 and explain to them what happened or go down to a local police station.
    Thanks for this. Appreciate it. What would you say is the worst that could happen? I'll phone the store tomorrow.

    Depends how bad it is. If its not so obvious you'll probably get away with it. Its not like people check every angle of thier car everytime they park somewhere. You definitely wont be banned from driving lol.

    I'd notice it. The corner of the bumper became dislodged.

    Ah ok. In that case it probably best to call the store.

    I'm sorry . That was uncalled for. Clearly, I'm no angel either .

    Doesn't sound like the end of the world to me. It's minor damage and a moment of panic. These things do happen - it's part of driving life - and there are far more serious misdemeanours. Own up to shop and police quickly and I am sure a lenient view will be taken.
