Imogen Clout: Since your post, a transmitter engineering notice has appeared for Ferryside stating that the transmitter is currently off air. This is likely due to a fault as there have been no recent notices of planned engineering work. Do not attempt to retune, just wait and your channels will return when the transmitter is fixed.
