Many thanks for all your comments. I backed off L and released the cable a bit via the Allen key and chain easily goes down the gears. Now it slightly struggles to go up the gear with the front cog, so I presume I will turn the L screw clockwise a half turn at a time until the chain will go up the gears. Hopefully it will operate as required. Once again many thanks.

to get the gears to shift up you need to adjust the cable, not the L screw. Usually there is a barrel adjuster (on the shifter or on the frameset) and you can adjust using that. If there isn't enough adjustment available then you may have to move the cable in the pinch bolt.
