I did this recently with my 5s and it cost me £50 at a small dedicated local 
shop. Downside is now Touch iD doesn’t work so I have to put in the 4 (or 6) 
digit passcode each time to open it. I believe only Apple can restore the Touch 
iD because it needs specialist kit hence the high cost. I didn’t think it was 
worth it. Replacement should only take 30 mins or less. I would be wary of 
doing it yourself.
I’m in Wiltshire I’m afraid so unless you are as well there’s little point in 
giving you any recommendations.
