Apparently it was the oil filter housing assembly that has some sort of built in valve that was blocked. Split a few pipes too.
250 for parts only.
The interesting bit was that when the parts were ordered from the local Ford dealer, they said that they had ordered around 60 in the local branch in the last 2 months!
To me that sounds like a dodgy design but I am not privvy to tech service bulletins so wouldn't know.

Turns out it was 'just a pipe' behind the bumper somewhere for 'just 400' all in, including the subsequent recharge.

Garage say there is a leak in the system, maybe two.
Difficult to see where it is coming from but they suspect it may be just a pipe or the receiver drier too.
Oh well, another thing to add to the list of issues- worst case maybe up to 500 worth if it is something else altogether!

Thanks Gazjs.
I should have thought of looking at the fuse.
You were right. I transposed the fuses over and the fault swapped sides. One fuse 5.36 though!!! A special, big fuse apparently!
