Breakaway Champagne Bottle

Does anyone know where to get a "breakaway champange bottle" (sugar glass) up North area? My little girl is launching a ship named after and the bottle we ordered arrived in little bits! Need it for Wednesday.
The launch site will not let use a real glass one.

HMS Queen Elizabeth was named on Friday with a bottle of Islay single malt whiskey. It was wrapped to prevent the glass flying everywhere whilst at the same time allowing it to break. H and sp gone mad.

Is the shipyard not supplying the bottle?
