    Maybe if you did a search for 8 inch floppy drive instead of 8inch you would find something.

    Not only are the 8" drives expensive now
    shipping from the USA to UK more than doubles the cost

    Most likely you will have to find a ribbon cable like from here 50-Pin SCSI Drive Ribbon Cables

    3M 50 pin for the drive
