patsmegane - you're a star!
Here's what I did - (with the engine running)

With the hood released using the handle near the rear view mirror > Released the hood cover using the nylon strap in the boot> lifted the hood cover and pushed the locking mechanism back to it's home position (as far down as it will go) > used the hood power switch (centre console) to move the hood to the fully down position > pull the nylon strap (in the boot) whilst pressing the hood cover down (locking it into position).
From this point on the hood worked perfectly.

Thats the last time I ever switch the ignition off half way through closing the hood - I was only trying to clean it!
