If you search this very forum you'll find it's a normal hex socket 20mm, 21mm or it might be a 22mm, (and I posted 2 of those replies, though I think I used a 15/16".)

I guess if you've a socket set you may have them all to try, if not there's enough space for an adjustable wrench.

You will also need a new washer, and some oil, and a filter... and be careful the undertray is fixed back on properly.

Or you could go to National and have them do it for less than the cost of the oil..
I'd rather be boating

Hi - well you can either use a square drive or a socket / spanner.

Usually 22m on the 2.0Hdi. As suggested a new washer is good practice but you can usually manage without - do not over tighten the sump plug (anyone remember the torque setting?).

If your buying you oil from somewhere like Halfords I wold seriously consider taking it to somewhere like national - personally I buy my oil in semi-bulk amounts as its a small fraction of the HalFrauds price.
