Shower Screen for bent wall

Above my bath, the bottom row of tiles are at an angle, the bottom of them is away from the wall by about 15mm. I imagine this was done so they sat on the (original 50's) bath. The other tiles are vertical.

I'd like to fit a bath screen, but I'd be left with a big gap between the screen and wall, too big to silicone.

Does anyone know of a screen where the wall mounting could be cut to fit, or some other way of fitting a screen?

can't you just slice a slot into the bottom tile with a small grinder,that way the wall rail will fit flush to the wall
Or, if there are no important bits at the end of the mounting rail, trim the bottom 6" to match the angle of the tiles.

Or scribe a battern to the wall the same width as the rail, then mount the screen on that.

Thanks all, I was hoping there was a magic bullet!

I considered the angle grinder method, but that would be too close to the bath for comfort and I don't have any spare tiles!

I thought about the batten, but in that environment I suspect the gloss would take a beating!

Has anyone "Profiled" a mounting rail like this succesfully?
A UPVC batten could be the answer. Your local window/facia Co will stock many UPVC profiles and a section could be screwed to the tiled wall and sealed with silicone. The mounting screws, for the shower screen, should be longer than normal and the batten drilled, right through, so that the securing screws are in the tiled wall. A 20/25mm thick batten would allow you to profile the lower 100mm or so to suit the sloping tile.
To ressurect an old post, but I've finally got around to fitting the screen, took Watchmakers' suggestion and it worked a treat.
