Any advice greatfully received. Thanks

You need a travel adapter kit as though you were an American housewife on holiday with nowhere to plug her hair dryer!
The power supply (transformer) is configured for U.S. wall outlets. The power supplies themselves are auto-switching, according to the label on it. It can use anywhere from 100-240V at either 50 or 60 Hz. So a simple adapter from 2 slot prong 120V “Edison” type connector to your standard, whatever they call the 3 pin 240V UK connector. You can get one on eBay if not the local electronics store. It’s just a {EDIT} 5V, 2.5A alternating current power supply that terminates in a micro-USB plug (a very important distinction) to power the Raspberry PI from a wall transformer. A very common item at stores that carry electronic devices. Any UK made wall transformer that uses the micro USB connector for the XYO Bridge and meets the above specs will work fine.
