Thank you for your response. It was very unfortunate that you did have service that was less than satisfactory from both ourselves and the agent. I cannot comment on the agent but from our point of view, I had gone into labour unexpectedly with my little girl and it had left us in a state of rush and confusion. We take on board your comments but can assure you that your experience is the exception rather than the norm and can only apologise once again for any failings on our part.
