You probably can't, unless someone has some squirreled away or has cut down their existing 8x10 stock. Delta 400 has been discontinued in 8x10 sheet film size and 5x7 is non-existant. Try HP5Plus, FP4Plus, TriX, Arista 125 or 400, or Bergger. There may be a few others, but not much in the way of choice left.

Your best bet would probably be to contact Ilford directly in the UK, and ask them.

Hi Vincent

We all are unhappy because he i`snt anymore. He died some months ago and we should maybe write some protest letters to Ilford, so we get at least the new 400 Delta back in sheets! I asked Ilford 1 months ago in Swiss, the told me I should take HP 5! But I told him then I have to change to Kodak TMax 400 I`m sory!

You could try KJP (Keith Johnson & Pelling) they're the largest pro stockist in England, and they have a branch in Manchester I believe.
Since Delta 400 has only recently been discontinued they may have some left in stock. 5x7 is not a popular size in the UK, though, so you may well be out of luck.

If you can't find 5x7, try asking for 13x18. When I last looked into oddball formats (ha!) here in Sweden there were quite a few more options in the metric format. You will need new film holders, but provided your camera isn't too old, you won't have to change your camera.
