Replacement RIB windscreen

Unthinking passenger at the weekend grabbed and broke the RIB console windscreen instead of tumbling over and breaking her nose and teeth. Picture of the windscreen before breakage is below.

Anybody got any ideas on how to source a replacement?

Thanks.

Try down the pub - there's bound to be some women there who fancy a spin on the RIB.

Collins plastics

Thanks for information. Liam at Collins Plastics http://www.collinsplastics.com has been very helpful and I'm hoping to get the windscreen to him for repair or replacement shortly.
