Vitus Aluminium Castings

I have broken beloved 1980s Vitus aluminium cyclocross frame. The gear-hanger on the rear drop-out broke off during a race - leaving the whole rear mech hanging loose!

I'd like to try to get it repaired - preferably in the UK.

Does anyone know if original (or reproduction) lug and drop-out castings are available anywhere?
