Fuel Cap Thingy - need a replacement

My fuel cap thingy has broken. The bit that clicks in and out. Anyone know where I can get one from??? I've tried realoem but struggled to find it (probably there somewhere but I searched for ages). Not tried the dealer as I reckon they'll be next to useless.

Oh, I've taken the protective rubber cover off.

Here's a piccy - any ideas where to locate one (I suppose a scrap yard is a fall back option).
