Leaking injector

Can anyone tell me how to repair a leak on one of my injectors? i noticed that there is a leak where the hex nut joins the block that is held to the cylinder head by a bolt, i have ordered a manual but it has not arrived yet.
It is a small leak but must have been going for some considerable time before i owned the car.
The area around the injector base where the diesel had lain had hardened like coke? can i remove the plastic angled head and simply tighten the hex head onto the block? any help would be appreciated, i have noticed a smell inside the car and think that this is the problem.

Most likely is leaking from copper washer. Remove the injector and replace.
