I was having trouble locking the door this afternoon and have moved the part on the slave door where the big slot part inserts as I found it was fouling against this. While doing this I noticed that the bottom lock does not even reach far enough across to where it locates so effectively the bottom of the door is not locked.

I think I need to adjust the hinge so that the main door at the bottom move closer to the slave door.

Here is a pic of the hinge, can anyone tell me if this should be adjustable?

Yes, the2 big pozi screws on the frame part of the hinge, these turn about 180 degrees back and forth and operate the hinge pin on a cam system, from a full turn left to right they'll give you about 5mm adjustment. It seems in your case you need pull the doors apart at the top and bring them together at the bottom, leave middle hinge where it is
