Will everybody please note. If you need advice on a topic please include as much information as possible about your installation otherwise it is impossible to offer much help at all.

The system is airlocked, try draining and refilling again. If this doesn't work, take off a radiator and connect a hose to the rad valves, drain it until you get hot water at flow and return - you'll probably hear when the air escapes.

Baxi bermuda 551's are failry old so I guess it's not a fully pumped system.
