Hi everybody who helped.
Having found on the internet, someone who tried to extract these pencil coils from his BMW and got into difficulties - broken coil, torn rubber, I have wimped out and booked an appointment with the garage across the road. With age comes wisdom or cowardice! There are apparently specialised extractors for the job. Hopefully the garage has one.
I will make a new post after Wednesday and hopefully be able to give more information.

Hi Everybody that advised me on replacement of spark plugs.

Eventually I wimped out of doing the job myself and took the car yesterday to our local garage.
They had a special tool for extracting the pencil coil gubbins on top of each individual plug.
They charged me £87 but I am happy with the result - no broken coils, torn rubber cover or bad language!
The car is now running like a dream.
