    The unit shouldn't be too expensive to replace. Leave it as it is and call a window fitter.

    Tape cardboard up against it to stop the wee chap getting about it.

    I have just had a fogged up unit changed, the unit replaced was around 3ft x 3ft and this was 69 inc fitting.

    Cheap to replace although 69 seems VERY cheap for a company to come out, measure up, make a new IGU and then return to fit. If you can get it done for 69 I would snap their hand off.
