Just been reading through all the comments as I'm currently going through the same problems and thought I'd find some tips here.
I first thought it was electrical as had a new alternator fitted by an uncle on the drive and then replaced the battery - still had the problem and so thought it needed a service and maybe the alternator hadn't been fitted properly. Had that done yesterday, the garage cleared a load of crap out of the fuel filter, have checked the glow plugs (they were all good) and we're still at a loss. Have been referred to a diesel specialist next which who I'll be calling tomorrow but will mention the fuel line and see if they can find anything wrong there.

I've read in multiple places that in the UK the ford diesels don't need the glow plugs. This always seemed a load of rubbish to me - especially as changing them fixed a cold start problem I had with my old tdci. I'm assuming from the comments in this thread, they are needed, and need to work in the winter!

so it may be the fuel were you fill up if you use the same one all the time. just a thought.
