I need a good tube repairer in ze north

During our bassless foray this weekend, we sustained some tube damage, namely ripped off 2 of the lifeline "D" rings. I've spoken to Charlie down at Ribcraft & he suggested finding someone local (or at least more local than Yeovil) to do the repairs. Sooo, can anyone recommend a good tube repairer within a couple hours drive of The peoples republic of South Yorkshire?

We have the painter clipped to the grabline & as Chris launched us on Sunday the painter caught on one of the trailer rollers & ripped 2 of the grabline "D" rings off. I'd prefer to let Ribcraft do it, but it's a drag to Yeovil & back + the waiting time. If I can't get someone to do it closer to home & match it with the other "D" ring patches, I'll bite the bullet.

Thanks for all the replies, I've been in touch with Dave Rose at Ribquest & he's going to take a look for me. He's only 1/2 an hour down the road.
