Advice Required: Zodiac Fastroller Valve Broken

So, today after rolling out the Zodiac on Swanwick slipway and preparing to inflate the port tube I noticed the valve was loose, this ''loose'' soon turned to broken and fell in to the tube.

I managed to inflate enough for a day out on the water, but it's not ideal.

Attached below is what remains of the black/green valve. So far as I can make out, what remains is the black outer that screws in to the main valve holder.

I know there is a removal tool for when the valve is intact but is there anything to combat this situation? Can this be removed with ease or I am up creek with out a paddle?

Still a good day out with the girls.

BTW, I was pleased to be questioned by the police mid channel, to whether I had a Kill-Cord on.

Your help is gratefully appreciated.

Ian

The inner valve costs about 5. Replacing it takes about a minute, but you need a special tool to unscrew the valve.
However it can be done with a pair of long nose pliers.

Thank you! Ron Hale Marine say it can be sorted as I can't get any purchase with long nose pliers.

Excellent thank you.

I'm recruiting at Goodwood all this weekend, so perhaps Mon/Tues after.
