The other day I started to notice my gear stick stiffening up and today it has got even worse , now when I drop out of gear the stick just stays where it is instead of shooting back to the centre , and also ive notice third isnt where it should be i have to push slightly to the right and up to get it.

Could anyone offer an explaination please

There are loads of posts (as well as solutions) on this already. Search for "gearbox" or "gear stick" and you'll get quite a few threads. The gist of the answer seems to be that the selector plate can corrode or get worn out over time / poor weather conditions. You can replace it, along with the plastic bushes, or take out the plate, clean it and put it back in. A specialist will probably clean it for you for less than £100. Alternatively, it could something to do with the linkage, but either ways its not a particular expensive fix. Apparently, all of this is a well known wear problem.

I had this problem up until last week...got the local garage to grease up the gear linkages and voila, problem solved for about £30 :)
