There are a few options - eBay seems cheapest, some products on Amazon as well. Not seeing a Ford branded touch up pen for that particular colour.

Some of the motor factors can mix paint to order, but the only one I know that can is in Oxford, probably not very useful to you.

I can mix paint up and post it? It’ll be a perfect standard match, unless you need a lighter or darker, or more coloured shade.
I did this on an Audi group a while back.
I was doing 20mls in a pot with brush for £5 a pot.
Postage has changed since, but can’t imagine it being more than £1.50

Sounds better than tippex for Diamond white! At least if it didn't match you could use a bit of acetone to remove it again too.
