Scum bags never left any note i guess.
I once saw a guy hit a car in a car part , i watched what he would do , he first changed parking space and then carried on his way.
So i wrote 2 notes , one for the car he hit and one for damaged car telling him i watched what he did and reported him to the driver and police.
Police station just around the corner. So i took his details left a note on his car and the other car he hit.
I then went and gave his details at the police station and a quick statement.
The owner of the Damaged car called me the following day thanking me . I would have loved to see the scum bags face when he read my note.
back to your car , damage to the front wing i would say may need a new one and like above i would say body shop job. good luck. Ask at the shop if they have CCTV cameras might be lucky.

Are you unable to put it through your insurance?

You would be better paying out for the new parts, but call into tesco and write a letter as well requesting there CCTV camera locations and ask if there are any pointing at that particular area, although you may not get to see the tapes first hand, you can report it to the police as leaving the scene of an accident and they could review the footage. Might not get far, but its always worth asking.

Under freedom of information act you can request images stored on CCTV but data protection laws would dictate that you could only receive or view images/video if the scheme producing the footage has the means to obscure or remove personal data/images of anyone not involved in the incident.
Police can review or obtain unedited footage but can only do so on the authority of an Inspector or above and then only when concerning the prevention or investigation of a crime.
Amazing what I remember after 8 years

Report it to the police an obtain a crime number, this will help with any subsequent claim you may make to your insurance company.
