Title:

lightning connector tip broken and stuck in charge port

Text:

When removing the charge cable from my ipad mini, the tip of the lightning connector has snapped off inside the ipad charging port.  Took it to Apple who cannot get it out and say they can only replace the whole ipad for £250! Surely there is a way of removing it without having to replace the ipad? Any suggestions
