I'm sure Derek's got a spare grille and bonnet. Sorted! Seriously though, let's hope nobody was seriously injured.

Looks pretty wreaked doesn’t it? Maybe a mark 1 might have faired better I think ?
The roof looks as if it’s collapsed!

Looks to be hit fair and square in the middle of the bonnet. You can see where the Consul's peaked headlight has left an indent on the leading edge. Worryingly it looks like the whole front has folded upwards.

I wonder also who is in the Austin Princess Limo? A bride late for her wedding or the Lord Mayor?

If you look closely the bonnet is more or less in position .What looks like the bonnet over the windscreen is a blanket or similar to shield occupants from rubber neckers
