                                 INTERIM REPORT

                                      FOR

                     THE SIX MONTHS ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2002


INTERIM STATEMENT


The company reports a trading loss for the six months ended 30 September 2002
amounting to £29,467.


The Board continues to investigate opportunities to restore shareholder value.
However, as yet the Directors have not identified any sufficiently attractive
enough to recommend to shareholders.


Although the Board hoped to report on a positive note in due course, the
continued uncertainty in financial markets has limited the opportunities
available.  In the circumstances, capital preservation, particularly cash,
continues to be a management discipline.

                       Six Months Ended 30 September 2002

   losses of £29,467 and on the number of shares in issue being the adjusted
   weighted average number of shares in issue totalling  130,000,000.

   The fully diluted earnings per share is based on 130,000,000
   ordinary shares allowing for the full exercise of outstanding share purchase
   options and the earnings as stated above.  There is no dilutive effect in the
   period and in the previous period in accordance with FRS 14 paragraph 56.


2  The comparative figures were for the year to 31 March 2002.
