Put a nut over the broken stump and weld it to it. The heat should easily release it.

Managed to extract remains of old bolt without further damage thanks for the advice guys. Had a hell of a job getting replacments vauxhall don't list them in parts catalogue anymore finished up getting them for a frontera fortunately the fit perfectly. Again thanks for the advice saved me forking out for another head.
