We would always advise that in the event of a complaint, the first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked and if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct (opens in a new window) will give you advice. If you are from outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre (opens in a new window)
