Recently, a driver of van delivering a parcel to my neighbour reversed his vehicle into my gate and severely damaged it. He got out of his vehicle and inspected it and the gate and then proceeded to drive away without informing me. The whole incident was recorded on my CCTV system. I have noted the van's registration mark from the CCTV footage but there was no livery on the side of the vehicle to identify which organisation it belongs to. Is there any way I can trace the driver of the van in order to seek compensation from him, or his employer, for the damaged caused to my gate please?
Unfortunately, my neighbour was not at home when the attempted delivery was made.
My neighbour is not aware, other than my discussion with them, of the attempted delivery as no information was left by the delivery driver of his visit.
No, they received nothing. Can I trace the driver by other means please?
It was substantial damage (iron twisted, bent and parts snapped off) to my gate.
Police were informed and stated that it was a civil matter.
Many thanks for your time. I will now make an application to the DVLA.
