The speedo in my car doesn't match the speed I'm actually driving at?

When driving, the speedometer in my Citroen C3 Picasso is showing a different speed to that which I'm actually driving it. How do I fix it?

The final drive speed sensor oil seal has probably failed. Costs about £100 to get it fixed.
