It's meant to be attached to something. There are no pipes that go nowhere.

Without seeing where it comes from, can't make any suggestions to where it should go, but are there no spare connections? Possibly on airbox for crank breather?

Take a photo of the other end and we'll have a pretty good idea of where it's meant to to.

Also, Vaux don't use zip ties to connect the pipes together, so that's been positioned by a mechanic. Might not even go up to the header tank! It would just be put there so it doesn't look like it's disconnected

That's the gearbox oil breather, there's not normally a pipe connected to it, there's a plastic cap on it that's removed when changing the oil.

You can leave is disconnected, plug it, or take the breather screw with plastic cap from another car/breakers
