    A bit of a difference in angle there but an angled or even straight pan connector should do it. There is some height misalignment so you need to either raise the w/c a little or cut the boss back so it doesn’t distort but make sure you leave enough length for the pan connector to fully engage the inside of the pipe.

    id suggest you make a couple inch raised platform for it , it would be the easier and safer option ,

    you dont want soil matter coming back or leaking :eek: ;)

    is it lead? if so chisel out the plaster/wall under the pipe and dress it into the right position and use a pan connector

    If it's Cast Iron I'd angle-grind the soil pipe off flush with the wall, put on a connector and try it. The "dynamics" depend on the pan!

    cut the lead as near the wall as you can, you WILL scrape your knuckles, fit a multikwik "ext A" into the lead and cut to length and fit a multikwik 1/14(angled pan connector) onto pan or get a flexible ext pan connection and it will bend to suit
