Tap tails

Been in my property for 8 months and flexible tap tail in bathroom has been dripping, fixed by tightening a little, but the tap tail connector is now kaput. Threaded end has just come off tail.

Took it to plumbers merchant but it's smaller than the standard m10. Though the thread looks a tad coarser too, but that may be an illusion. Measures about 8mm.

What have i inherited?!

Any ideas where to find m8 flexible tails?

Thank you. I googled it to death as well. Found a pair by lunns for 40 so you've saved me 20 quid!

Just hope they are m8 and Ive not got some obscure imperial fitting...

Thanks a lot Will

Why didn't I think of ebay ?!
Those E-Bay tails look like M8 x 1/2" so if you wanted to connect direct to 15mm pipe you would need a 15mm x 1/2" male copper/iron.
Or if you have 15mm isolation valve's, then you could just connect on those with the female 1/2" part of the E-Bay flexi.
