Someone might have something but I think you'll be very lucky if they do.

Might be an idea to speak to a hydraulic hose company to make up a flexi repair piece or something?

Found one, still on car at moment breaker wants £35 just for the small pipe from rack to first flexi pipe.
Still, rest of car is good so I'll probably have it to keep the old girl going.

Thanks Peter,
A replacement part has been sourced after a lot of searching. Amazed at how difficult it was to get one but I wasn't going to scrap a car off for the sake of a bit of aluminium pipe.
Tip, check the heat shield by the steering rack for security, mine had worked loose and sawed through the pipe, it's now been removed.
