Coolant sensor leak

A couple of days ago, I parked up and noticed some whisps of steam coming from the gap between the bonnet and wing on the drivers side. I turned off the engine, popped the bonnet and noticed a thin jet of coolant spraying out from underneath the drivers side inlet manifold. The engine was running fine, temperature was normal and warm air was blowing from the heater just fine.

After having a good nosey around at the area of the spray/leak, and then running the engine again, I found the jet was coming from a metal right-angled hose junction in the area of the coolant sensor- not on the corner but from a pin sized hole in the main body! See photo with red cross showing the location of it.
Its not a photo of my engine though, found it on the web!

Any ideas what caused this and how to fix?
