Leaking tap connector?

I have a tap that is leaking where the tap tail (threaded bit) meets what I think is the tap connector. It is a nut that screws onto the threaded tap tail. The other side of the nut is just copper pipe. The leak is from underneath the nut. Help please! Does it have a washer in this bit, if so where and how do I replace it? Many thanks.

Assuming you are in UK (this IS uk answers).
Yes, there is a small, red fibre washer in there. Go to DIY store, plumbing section, get a tap connector washer. Isolate the tap, loosen the nut until it disengages from the tap. Ease the pipe down, there is the washer. Replace,check for leaks. You may need to tighten a touch more.
If you feel the need, the DIY store should have some "Fernox LS-X", this is like a silicon sealant, great stuff. Put some on the copper pipe before and after replacing the washer, then tighten.
