I have the following U.S/Chinese Power plug for my 7 port USB Hub (2 flat pins)

Details on the Plug are
PRS AC/DC Adapter
MODEL: HP- 5V2
INPUT: AC100-240V 50/60Hz
OUTPU: 5V---2A

I'm looking for an adapter/convertor so I can use it in a U.K socket (3 pin). I'm really not sure what I need. People I've spoken to say I'll need a power convertor not just an adapter due to the differences in voltage, to prevent myself from frying it. The power convertors/adapters I've seen won't fit the pluf due to the shape of it. Any pointers greatly appreciated, obviously i'll take safety over price on this one but as always the cheaper the better.

I work in an airport so I've seen that one, just wasn't sure about power conversion, thanks though. Problem is, that one specifically isn't a flat connection, it has a raised ridge around it which means my PSU wouldn't slot in perfectly it's be slightly protruding.
