Thunder Road Cwmbran should be able to help you out with a new chain tool. If it's a mechanic, the service dept might be able to recommend.

It's a bit rough and ready and care must be taken not to over tighten and pinch the link,  but two hammers works well.  Preferably a heavier one to use as an anvil and the lighter to strike the rivet.
