chain can slip, plus can do damage if it does.
can either physicly check timing, or do a compression test.
when foot is flat on accelerator, this will cut fuel supply, so if it appears to try and start better when you do this, is it possible engine is flooded...might be worth whipping plugs out to have a look

again, from memory, there is a bolt at front of engine, low down on gearbox side.
turn engine to approx 45 deg before tdc, remove that bolt, fit crank pin in its place.
turn engine slowly, clockwise till crank locks against pin....
remove cam cover, back of camshafts are slotted, if timing is correct you will be able to fit camshaft bar into those slots across the head...if they dont line up. timing has slipped.
pretty sure thats correct
various cheap spark testers on market, just fit them between plug and lead, have someone turn the engine over whilst you watch for good strong spark

ok I have taken a short video of it trying to start and running for approx ten seconds its not great but if it confirms timing chain or helps with a diagnosis....audio isnt great as my phones not the best video is here http://s1327.beta.ph...5b4d79.mp4.html thanks in advance for any advice/opinions and thanks to those who have already posted...

camshaft sensor or
did the aa check the condition of plugs/coil/leads/spark?
i know you said they were recently replaced, but any failure along those lines can throw up similar symptoms
but to be honest, there are so many possibles with that kind of fault, wouldnt want to suggest throwing money in a try this or try that...
might pay to get a proper diagnosis

almost sounds like its firing on 2 cylinders.try taking plugs out 1 at time and turn it over wil some1 checks for spark
