Have you thought about putting details on local social media? Might be somebody that knows the car.

They said its a matter for insurance that was about it tbh. I know they will be able to find who the car is registered to, whether they do anything about it i don't know though, would they have to catch it being used on the road to do anything? I highly suspect for the age and miles and value of the blue mazda that it would certainly not be worth repairing. Prob moved onto another car.

I agree its annoying and is prob what shoves up insurance costs for us all.

It has been but not had any information now and its over a week. I know it wouldn't do much good as still has no insurer to claim off. What annoyed me more was being told i was at fault by my insurer without evidence of what occured beyond my description. They haven't seen any of these pictures. Also the wording of a claim in there policy is terribly worded. I have submitted a DVLA enquiry for information, will wait and see what comes back.

I sympathise with your difficulties. I would be voting with my feet and taking my business elsewhere and changing insurers.

The fact the uninsured car shouldn't of even been there when you were still makes it your fault.

If you vote with your feet you will have to declare the collision (probably on a common database so can be checked anyway that could result in insurance being declined that will cost you even more) and will probably have to pay more.

I was hit by an insured driver a fair few years ago. I got re-numerated via the MIB or something?

I thought i would have to deal with it myself and the MIB form looks a little complex but the insurer has appointed a solicitor to help claim back my excess. Also got to go for a medical for assessment of any injuries.
