Hi. Sounds very much like the all too common window regulator problem. The metal regulator wires are most likely frayed and catching in the rollers / mechanism hence the window stopping.
Replacement regulators are available from
for about £50 plus and can be fitted yourself. The instructions on how to do it are on this forum somewhere.
