Cam Belt Problems

Hi Guys

I'm in trouble, coming out of London last night my cam belt went. Managed to get a tow home to Midhurst in West Sussex (160) but the garage now tells me the engine has gone competely!

Any ideas please how best to proceed ie does it mean a new engine and where do I get the best deal?

Your help would be most appreciated to an old pensioneer. The car is only 4 years old and has only done 41,000 miles. It's frankly rediculous and should not have happened in this day and age. I am feeling very cross about this. Is this a well known problem?
