Looking to get something that is easy to use but also reasonable quality. Very limited budget (£50 ish). Will probably have to get from e-bay (used/refurbished) but really need some advice or direction to any review sites.

Wanted optical zoom/3mpixel/macro

Really something to help, stimulate interest in photography without making me too broke....

Thanks for the sites. Could you advise on the Kodak Easyshare can they connect via conventional usb rather than having to get dock?

Apart from Morgan Computers, as mentioned, also have a look at Argos:

Thanks for letting us know. I don't think you could do any better than that. Especially for the money. My niece has that camera and the pictures are excellent.
