Default 1995 lsi, cam belt snap, what to do?

my cam belt has just snapped on my 1995 lsi non vtec engine, i was wondering what the best thing to do is regarding whether any damage has ocurred to the valves etc, ie the car is only worth about 800 quid and i believe if their is a problem it will cost near 500 to fix, is their anyway of telling if any damage has been done without refitting a new timing belt which on its own would cost £100 quid plus and praying lol, would it be better to buy a replacement engine second hand or are these expensive as well?


sny help needed
cheers
