Have now added two more earth straps from body to engine using 10mm electrical earth cable and the sort of earth clamps that attach the cable to the bottom of central heating radiators. Heath Robinson? Maybe - but it works fine.

Once again, thanks for your help. Wife can now go and collect the Kids from school!

No problem Inspector Gadget, glad you have your starting troubles sorted. Nice DIY fix, I would never have thought of that . Just for future refernece, If you go under the gearbox end of the engine and look up you should see the earth strap. It will look similar to the one I've attached to this post.
Good news anyway, well done
