Thanks Fletch. That has been fixed. Although I notice that the FDR has now changed again. The above was correct at time of writing.

Yes it has changed again, and working in a major company that changes it's practices depending on the FDI it is pretty frustrating. Although as a firefighter I am glad the FDI is going down not up!
