    You could probably fill it depending on the size but the problem you would have it if it flexes it could easily crack and fall out again

    People can make a better suggestion of best way to fix it.
    But if its bad, its possible best to replace it.

    Bumper skin is a pretty easy fit, depending on how bad the damage is I would get a replacement sprayed and fit it yourself.

    £100- £150 For the repair and the whole bumper resprayed, a good body shop will take the bumper off but most will not.
