Maplins are selling this for £3.93, down from £39 ! got one today, seems okay. Part number N33CH. Not to be confused with N34CH which they show on the website as the same thing for £2.99, but is actually the replacement filter inserts.

Thought I'd spread the word.

Thanks for that, though we already discovered it :-) Can't go wrong at that price, as you say.

I am producing a review, also a review of their cheap gas soldering iron very shortly.

Alan,
Did you realize that according to their web site, the fan is 'discontinued'? - Presumably they are selling off the stock - hence the price.

Thanks for that, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

The Maplin gas soldering iron PG509 is at an unbeatable price as well (£9.99 online!).

A full review + photos are now here -- I'd get one while they have them, at that price, and although the Maplin iron is a bit primitive in some respects, you really can't go wrong. (Even if my first one leaked all over the place!)
