Where can I get nutritional yeast in the UK? Failing that, what could I use instead?

Some recipes I'm interested in making (e.g.
) call for "nutritional yeast", which I've never heard of. My understanding from Googling is that is is de-activated yeast
used to beef up the flavour of vegan food. Does anyone know where I might find it easily in the UK and what we call it here (which may well be "nutritional yeast" — I'm neither a vegan nor much of a cook!)? The Holland and Barrett website, which was my first thought for this sort of thing only has Brewer's Yeast.
Failing that, are there any alternatives I could use that are available in a biggish Tesco? MSG? Parmesan? I'm a vegetarian, if it makes any difference.
