First tubeless puncture, sealant didn't work

I had my first puncture with my tubeless tyres today, think a stone made a small cut. The sealant escaped and didn't repair the puncture so I used a tube.

The cut doesn't look very big at all, I'm a little surprised it didn't seal. What are my options to carry on using the tyre? Can you repair it or carry on running a tube?

    You need tyre boot and a repair. Do you use Stans sealant?

    Depends on how big the cut is - should be OK with a patch on the inside.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    yep just patch the inside with a tubeless repair patch
