Correct socket for brake pump removal

So I've been running the weather machine (my 98 Brooklands) as I've had to pull it in an out of the shop and the other day, I came back to this big puddle on the floor. I was able to trace the leak to the front of the engine so I assume that it's the front pump so I guess it's time that I start spending money on it.

Can anyone tell me what the correct size is for the brake pump socket? Is it generic or a special RR tool?

Special RR. Get it from Kelly at British Tool Works.

If you're sure it's hydraulic fluid from the pump it could possibly be the seals between the pump and pump housing. If that's the case removing the pump wouldn't be necessary.

Thanks all, I'll pull the engine cover and take a look.
