Sounds like the glow plugs need replacing - a mechanic told me to use genuine Ford as they last much longer - you can test them first by removing them individually and hold them with well insulated pliers or similar and watch them glow when 12 v is attached - watch out though they do get hot - check them off the car as a faulty solenoid can also be the cause

thanks will try that also read some one with the same sort of thing only did it when hot and it did start first thing when it was cold so could be the same as his which turned out to be needing a up data from ford to cure the hot starting problem so think i will try the plugs then see if the update cure's it :)
