new ***** owner with little prob!

Heya guys, hoping someone can help me out here!I recently had some work done on my wifes car by a guy in stoke or giz1978 the results arnt good and i need a local bodyshop to put it right,not much cash as paid him for the job
these are the problems:

wheel arch liner not fixed with big gaps
paint runs on rear bumper
poorly fitted so gaps on lights
front grill not fully sprayed
bumper pulling away from screws as under stress
rear bumper not aligned
nowhere near a colour match
parts breaking under the stress of poor fitting
holes dont align so screws left out
paint everywhere
roof seal removed for painting and refitted badly hence seats are soaking
rust not treated just sprayed
poor fitting and big gaps
wing edges not even sanded or trimmed before fitting
gaps on side skirts

anyone know a good shop?
