I am unable to do that as I actually keyed the vehicle.
It was reported to the police however when I met the police they said if i paid this money (which i have) they would ask the other person to drop the charge of criminal damage which he says he will!. I admitted to the damage within 24 hrs, however did not receive any correspondence until a letter was received from his solicitor. His estimates and quotes are very poor. I dont mind paying for the damage as long as he can prove that is how much it actually costs.
