Unhappy Renault Scenic - Problem Starting

I have a Renault Megane Scenic Mk1 which decided about 2 weeks ago that it wouldn't start due to flat battery (82% healthy, but flat). I recharged the battery. Car still wouldn't start. Checked HT leads (3 months old still and appear ok).

Decided to change spark plugs (only 12.50 for a set so worth doing). Starter motor was healthy according to mechanic during MOT (less than a month ago)...

When I turn the ignition, all appears ok, lights bright, warning lights on then off in usual sequence, no w/l remain lit. Engine turns over with healthy sound and tempo but will not start for anything between 2 and 6 attempts then runs fine...

Any ideas?
