We are very sorry to report that our website has been experiencing sever problems since around 12:00 today. There have been many problems with the website being very slow indeed. This problem was resolved around 16:00 today but then another issue occurred with our secure server. Without this working properly we have been unable to correctly process orders although we would like to thanks those customers who did persevere and managed to place their orders. We processed these as normal and sent them on time with Royal Mail.
We hope to have the situation resolved very soon and we would like to apologise to all of our customers unreservedly.
21:00: Our website is now backup and running properly and orders are being processed as normal. We will monitor the situation for the next few hours.
