Paul Barker, 40, claimed that the Asda delivery driver did not even leave a note after colliding with his Audi A3 outside his home in Bromley, southeast London earlier this month. The incident was caught on another driver’s dashcam.

The video shows a driver reversing their white Asda van into Mr Barker’s parked car.

The impact caused the corner of the vehicle to smash into the driver’s side window.

The van appears to have been travelling too quickly and collides heavily with the A3, which costs up to £30,000 new.

Mr Barker said: “Asda has been useless.

“They took an eternity to identify the van but still haven’t given us insurance details.

“We cannot get the car fixed until we have those details.

“They seem to just think they can fob people off.

“We want to get the car back on the road but it is not driveable, we just want to put this behind us.”

He continued: “Unfortunately, we have had no apology for the incident and nobody has called despite me providing my number.

“There can be no claim from the driver that he didn’t notice as they haven’t just nicked the car, they have put a hole in it.

“If you don’t know or don’t feel that impact then you should not be on the road.”

Mr Barker also claimed that the driver drove off straight after and didn’t even attempt to make contact or track down him or his partner.
