As it turns out...

I called the RAC out, he gave it a good hammering, and a bit of a testing. Click click click.

He then got his spanner out to short it himself....

Click click click

He then did some testing with a multimeter type thing, and found the fault.

It seems it's the solenoid..I paraphrase....

"It's engaging the starter, so it's in mesh, but it's only giving it 0.8 volts....Solenoid's starter motor"

Just need to price one up now and find out how hard it is to fit.....grrr
