Default Plastic rear bumper/valence cracked

Any suggestions for a good DIY repair for the above on my 308 (2008 model) This crack is about 3-4 inches long (vertically) close to the rear offside of the valence and is becoming worse, as the paint is beginning to chip off. I've no experience in plastic or GRP repairs.

Thanks for any useful tips.

You need to search for plastic welding. Only proper way to repair it... but then you will need to spray the bumper.

The other way is using carbon fibre or glass fibre mats and use a high strength epoxy on the inside of the bumper to reinforce the crack, if you don't want to respray it and live with a hairline crack.
