BMX'ers still use U brakes Jez so you should be able to get hold of some from a shop that stocks BMX's.

Road brake blocks fit too - you just need to play with the spacers. The road blocks that Halfords sell fit.

V brake blocks are too thin and shonky, get yourself some scott matthauser bmx blocks for that authentic v brake squeeeeeeel, always some on ebay!
