Need spare parts for a Giottos 8361B

I bought one of these six years ago.

One of the legs recently collapsed, nearly hitting a nearby toddler.  I am still sweating at the thought.  I hadn't done anything unusual: it just decided to give up.

I was hoping to get it repaired but, astonishingly, the UK agent doesn't stock spares of this model "because it is more than five years old".  So if anyone knows where I might get a spare leg, please let me know.

[FYI: the inside of each segment of each leg is secured by a small plastic sleeve.   That's what gave way, causing a few kilos of tripod, bullhead and camera come crashing down.]
