boiler constantly trying to ignite ! ! !

Hi Guys, hope you can help.

Worcester 24i junior. In CH or DHW mode the boiler ignites and comes on. I can see the ignition electrode constantly sparking away. After 2-3 mins the boiler shuts off, and ignition ceases. Then approx 1-2 mins later the boiler fires up again and repeats the same thing. Any ideas please.
