    A single white line is a stop line. http://www.findleys.co.uk/highway_co..._markings.html
    If should be in the hands of the insurers by now, so you will have to wait and see what conclusions they come to. I never assume a vehicle is going to give way, I seek to confirm what they are doing, other drivers do not have to be drunk to make errors of judgment.

    A single (broken) white line is the normal marking at a mini-roundabout. Give-way signs are not required. You must give priority to traffic approaching from the right.

    As you describe things it would seem that you are at fault, but the fact that the other driver (who had priority) was drunk and arrested may help to muddy the waters in your favour.

    It seems usuual that if a driver involved in a collision is prosecuted for any offence relevant to the collision that the blame is usually apportioned 100% to them by the insurers. You may well find yourself exonerated if he is prosecuted for drunk driving in any way.
