You could make a snail trap. Take a small plastic water bottle (remove the label) or a tupperware container. Using a screwdriver poke a hole/holes into the cap/lid. Put some kind of bait in the container such as shrimp pellets. Leave it in your tank for a day or two. The snails crawl in to get the food but can't crawl back out.

If you want to kill them you can get some copper plant fertilizer and just dose the tank with the recommended amount.

My LFD in Northamptonshire (UK) sells assassin snails and they also have them in Pets at Home here. There is a Pets at Home in Great Yarmouth, have you tried there?
