Need a small diameter screw for hanging mirror to wall.

Recently I have inherited a long thin mirror that I want to replace an existing mirror in the hallway.

Both mirrors have a round hole on the back to hang from a screw in the wall.

The head of the screw in the wall that fits the existing mirror is too wide to fit the hole in the new mirror.

Hence I need a smaller screw. The new mirror hole is 4-5mm in diameter.

I visited Homebase today and they did not have any screws with heads smaller than about 6mm.

Does anyone know where I can get a screw for the job? (no pun intended). UK based.

Drill hole to 6mm.
Go to any hardware shop.
Check homebase again they do small screws.
