Vortex Viper Scope Damaged

I was visiting Ham Wall RSPB last week (lovely place) and unfortunately my Vortex Viper scope fell off my tripod while I was carrying it. It now has something rattling about inside and is unusable. I am not able to use the Vortex VIP warranty as the scope was not purchased in the UK. I have tried contacting a couple of repairers but had no response, does anyone have any recommendations for a repairer in the UK that they have used?

Many thanks

There was a very recent post saying that Tony Kay of OptRep Selsey is still repairing all optics.
If so, a good choice.

Would Vortex repair the scope for a fee?

It sounds as though a prism has come loose. Not uncommon.
Action Optics will be able to fix it at a reasonable cost.
