Had a collision

Riding home last night, filtered up the left of stationary queuing motor traffic, single lane of one way traffic with parked cars on one side. I think that the car i was passing started moving as I went across in front and my bike and the car were in collision. No injuries, no damage to my bike. But either modern cars are a lot more fragile than I realised or a pannier containing twelve tins of dog food is heavier than you'd think, but the end result was the whole plastic bumper thing coming off the front of the car! Exchanged names and addresses and waiting for a call back now from the Cycling UK incident line to find out what happens next (I'm a member, so have their insurance).
