The Nexus 5 is currently on offer, but hurry - it's about to disappear for good http://www.mobot.net/google-nexus-5-73653

To get the screen of an LG Nexus 5 replaced you need to expect to pay appr £100 - unless you feel techie and do it yourself. Parts are available on ebay and amazon, and how-to videos can be found on Youtube...

I guess if you're happy with the Nexus 5 and the time to fix it is not inconveniencing you, then a hundred bucks may be 'worth it'... Beyond that - it's your call. Personally, I'd use the £100 and buy a Moto G.
If your shattered Nexus works otherwise, you might still get a few bucks if you sell it for parts or 'recycle it'.... win-win..
