Where are you sourcing that from? Peters Spares have them at £5.52 and their spares prices are usually on the high side (i.e. cheaper elsewhere)

So you need to shop around as this must be a mistake. Lendon's of Cardiff have it available for £3.98.

Yes and no delete option in the editor that I can see, but lucky for us all that your eagle eyes picked the error up, we will all sleep better now.

You could use the report button to ask for the duplicate post to be deleted by a moderator. :)

I am sure the moderators have better things to do than be bothered by a duplicated one line post, hardly War and Peace.
