, My daughter has a Flavel inset gas fire s/no. FICC425N.

Resolved Question:

,
My daughter has a Flavel inset gas fire s/no. FICC425N. It is quite an old one, I think.
It was in use last Winter but it will now no longer light up at all. Can you advise what the most likely bits to go wrong might be?
Thanks.
