Yes

You can always ignore a civil summons - the likely effect is that judgement will be entered against you and the plaintiff can then take further action to enforce the judgement.

This can include having your property seized, garnisheeing your bank accounts or wages, or requiring you to attend court - failure to answer this summons is contempt and can lead to your arrest.

A judgement in a UK court can, subject to treaties, be enforced in foreign jurisdictions under the relevant local law.
