Update: Received new hel performance braided hose and bleed nipple. Once I fitted new parts and bled the system I was hoping that would be the end of it, well I was wrong on that one.  When I rode my bike home I still found that I had a small leak around the bleed nipple area of the calliper. What I noticed when I removed the old bleed nipple it was rusted at the end of it (which is a bit worrying). I'm thinking when I removed the old nipple and where it has rusted it has pitted the internal thread causing it to leak. So now I have decided to get a 2nd hand calliper from eBay. Lettuce hope this put this to bed once and for all. 

Just use a copper washer under the nipple. 

Personally I'm still going with the m/c.

Well I managed to put this one to bed. I sourced a second hand calliper from eBay, fitted it, no more leak. Have to admit I wasn't happy at first that I had to buy another calliper but when I read the eBay item description I had to put things into perspective a bit. The calliper came from a MT07 that only had 241 miles on the clock before it was written off. Should the owner of that MT07 ever come across this message I hope you are ok. One again, thank you to all you guys for your help.

it would be interesting to see what actually happened to the old caliper. Certainly seems like the opposing slider was sticking preventing the pads closing down on the disc.
