If you put Mr.Muscle oven cleaner around the seat of the injectors when the engine is hot and leave it for 10mins. i believe this can release the sticking injector.Just don't try and force it,if it means taking the head off to get a better purchase on the injector then do it.

thanks for that! so i will NOT use oven cleaner and the best tip is to run upto temp and i'm going to use duck oil around the injector before i start to remove.

with all the black carbon now off i can see it's only No.2 injector leaking so i will only do that one.

If you require the tool for removing the injectors in the UK here will rent a special puller at a reasonable price. It certainly helps to do it on a hot engine as it's expands the alloy head a bit.
