Yeah, was going to suggest checking your chain. If there is a seized/tight link you can easily feel it. Sprockets might be worn and hooking too.

That was my first thought too as the front sprockets have been known to come loose despite the locking washer being in place Shocked

Also well worth looking at the chain wear for uneven stretching & tight/loose spots

Let us know how you get on please

will give it a good lubing and oiling and if it persists i will take her in for a chain and sprocket overhaul or atleast a good looking over.

cheers for advice people.

If you can get the bike on a stand when you oil the chain, turn the wheel and watch the chain. If there is any seizure you will see it and feel it, unfortunately oiling won't fix it.

I've had those symptoms a few times, usually the chain and once one of the rear wheel bearings collapsed.
