Yes, £800 (approximately $1,000 USD) is expensive. But your pictured lines with the chewed-up Springlock connection have twists and turns, and an apparent crimp besides, making a fix unlikely. You'll be better off having the shop handle it from start to finish. They will install new lines and whatever else is needed.

But if you're able to do some of the work yourself, you could purchase and install the new lines and then have the shop evacuate and recharge the system, saving you some money.

Lastly, since the system has been open to the atmosphere for an unspecified length of time, definitely replace the receiver/dryer.
