JTD fuel leak

Good afternoon all,
Found an annoying problem on my 156 diesel last night and was wondering if anyone knew how hard it would be to sort out...

Basically I have a small diesel leak from one of the connections feeds into/from the diesel filter mounting in the back of the engine bay - it appears that one of the gaskets on the connection in question has failed and is dribbling fuel when under pressure.

Here is where I mean (pic for far and then closer) - its the top banjo bolt that is leaking at the point it connects to the silver manifold that the fuel filter connects to....


I am guessing its a metal gasket of some description thats given up the will to live.
I have tried tightening the bolt but it wont budge and am not going to force it and damage the whole thing.

Any watchouts on replacing this myself? cheers!

Couple of copper washers is all that is needed to fix.
