Slow speed bump

Unfortunately the conditions caught me out this evening (extremely wet and lots of autumn leaves) and I went into the rear of the Civic in front of me. Very slow speed, I must have been little more than 15mph when the car in front threw his anchors on. I did the same however the ABS kicked in and it just would not stop. Ridiculously I became a passenger whilst this pathetic little bump occurred.

The Civic appears to have a small chip in the bumper however it looks like my bonnet badge made impact with his bumper and the seem of the bonnet is now raised along the wings (by a few mm). The front bumper appears to have a similar little chip in it as the Civic just below the badge however I cannot see any significant damage. Daylight may tell a different tale however. Do any of you guys know of how I can go about fixing this or can you recommend anyone in the Glasgow area? I doubt the insurers need be involved.
